"Spoken Names" added to Holocaust memorial
The names of Dutch Jews, Roma and Sinti will that were deported via camp Westerbork, will from now on always sound on the grounds of the camp. The names can be heard from an original train carriage that is believed to have been used for deportation during the war. About 107 thousand people were deported from Westerbork to the death camps in Eastern Europe. Only 5 thousand survived the war. This new monument "The Spoken Names" is to keep the memory of the Holocaust victims alive, RTL reports. The carriages are installed on a piece of track on the spot from where nearly 100 trains left between July 15th, 1942 and September 13th, 1944.
