Stolpersteine placed in sidewalk Jan van Goyenkade 1

On Monday 2 May, two stolpersteine were placed in the sidewalk in front of Jan van Goyenkade 1. Mrs. Colland recently contacted Jan van Goyen Medical Center. This lady is the granddaughter of the original occupant of the building on the Jan van Goyenkade, which now houses the Jan van Goyen Medical Center. In 1942 her grandfather – called Alfred Cohen – had to flee from the Nazis. Several Jewish refugees also lived in his house on Jan van Goyenkade, including the parents of Mrs. Colland's great-nephew. Unfortunately they were killed in Sobibor. Mrs. Colland has now had so-called 'stolpersteine' (stumbling stones) made for them. These are memorials placed in the sidewalk in front of the former residences of people who were expelled, deported, murdered or driven to suicide by the Nazis.

On May 2, these stolpersteine were placed in the sidewalk in front of Jan van Goyenkade 1. There was a short ceremony in which, after the placement of the stolpersteine, Rabbi Menno ten Brink spoke, said kaddish and a flute piece was recited by the well-known flutist. Eleanor Pameijer.
