On January 28th 2018 the Jewish Monument The Hague was unveiled on the Rabbijn Maarsenplein by the mayor of Den Haag, Ms. Pauline Krikke. This monument, designed by Anat Ratzabi, incorporates the Amalek sculpture by Dick Stins in 1967 that was formerly on the Gedempte gracht. The monument commemorates not only the murdered thousands but also ‘De Buurt’, the Jewish area that flourished around this square for almost four centuries. The keynote speaker during the unveiling was Dr. Ernst Hirsch Ballin, his impressive speech can be read here.
