The Amalek Monument with the big Star of David was established to commemorate the Jews from Den Haag who, during the war, were deported and murdered by the occupier. The Monument was unveiled by senior rabbi S. Beëri together with the mayor of Den Haag Mr. H.A.M.T. Kolfschoten. Originally it was affixed to the façade of a building on the Gedempte Gracht belonging to the Levi Lassen Foundation, on whose initiative it was commissioned. Today it is part of the Jewish Monument Den Haag.
