Caption: Nooit Meer Auschwitz/Auschwitz Never Again Memorial
Additional Description: "The Auschwitz-monument, based on a design by Jan Wolkers (1925-2007), acquired a permanent place in the park in 1993. The monument was formerly located at the Oosterbegraafplaats (cemetery) as from 1977. The broken mirrors represent the heavens that are irrevocably cracked since the murder of six million Jews in extermination camps. More than 104,000 Jews were taken away from the Netherlands and killed. An urn with ashes from the crematoria of Auschwitz is placed under the monument." - IAmsterdam
