UNVEILING OF THE MONUMENT FOR JEWISH CHILDREN
In 1999 the name Bezemstraat was changed to ‘Rabbijn Maarsenplein’, in commemoration of rabbi Isaac Maarsen, the Jewish opperrabbijn of Den Haag in the Second World war. On November 20th 2006 a monument was unveiled to commemorate all the Jewish, Roma and Sinti children from Den Haag who had perished during the war. This ‘Kindermonument’ was established on the place of the playground of the former Jewish primary school on the Bezemstraat. A side-monument with all the names of the murdered children from Den Haag, Jewish, Roma and Sinti, can be found in the Museon.
