In het gebouw
Hortusplantsoen 2 was van
1928 tot 1976 het J.C. Ammanschool gevestigd
vor onderwijs aan dove kinderen van allen
religies en uit alle bevolkingsgroepen.
Tijdens de Wereldoorlog (1940 - 1945)
werden ook hier de Joodse leerlingen en
leerkrachten vervolgd door de Duitse bezetter.
Deze plaquette herrinert er aan dat zij
moesten vluchten en onderduiken.
Van hen zijn de meesten
in de Duitse kampen omgebracht.
Wij zullen hen nooit vergeten.

[English translation:]
In this building, Hortusplantsoen 2, from 1928 to 1976 the J.C. Amman School was located, offering an education to deaf children of all creeds and colors. During the Second World War (1940-1945) here, too, were the Jewish students and teachers persecuted by the German occupiers. This plaque is a reminder that they were forced into hiding, and that most of them were killed in the German (concentration) camps. We shall never forget them.
