Show sight on map

The Jewish monument at the lower reaches of the river ditch is a bronze statue of a grieving woman. It was made by sculptor Paul de Swaf. On May 4, 1995, a monument commemorating more than 400 Jewish businesswomen killed in death camps during World War II was unveiled. To commemorate the revelations, the intersection where the images are located is named after one of the youngest victims of Jewish hippos: Kitty (kaat) is a wise man. This young woman has become a symbol of the deportation of Jews and will never come back.
