4th of May, 2014

In the context of the memorial of the victims of WWII, I was invited to contribute a work for 'Open Joodse Huizen'. In collaboration with Alle Jong, whom had made a painting of Rosette van Beugen, I came up with a small but meaningful intervention on the location where Rosette and her family had lived until 1942. Shortly after the invasion of the Nazis, she and her family moved to Amsterdam. Sadly, they where deported and murdered in Sobibor in 1943.

Me and Jong arranged a guided tour from the synagoge, where his painting was on display, to the address where this subtle memorial was placed.
