In the Wertheim park near the Hortus Botanicus is this monument made out of glass. It’s fragile but strong in a sense. And it’s important to have this monument in Amsterdam.

Definitely an imaginitive way to commemorate the Holocaust and Auschwitz. The special installation makes you think.

The monument itself may seem odd - sort of understated, a large glass plate shattered but when you're there you realise the symbolism, the shattered lives of millions and generations forever affected. It is solemn and while simple, still fitting. The monument is located in...More

Monument is set up in a lovely park. Monument itself is very beautiful. It's a shame that the monument has dog tracks on it - just seems for what this represents, that dogs could stay off it. But it is a beautiful monument.

The monument is right in the middle of the former Jewish quarter, which still has many Jewish related buildings/sites. It's a must see in the sense that the designer (Jan Wolkers) has created great symbolism with this monument and if you want to have any...More

A monument by Jan Wolkers, it memorializes the victims of Auschwitz. The monument itself is composed of broken mirrors place under large sheets of glass on the ground. Not a huge monument but sobering nonetheless.
