Show sight on map

The Jewish monument in the lower town of Nijmegen is a bronze statue of a grieving woman. It was made by sculptor Paul de Swaaf. On May 4, 1995, the monument, made in memory of the more than four hundred Jewish nijmegeners who were killed in the extermination camps during the Second World War, was unveiled. In memory of the unveiling, the intersection on which the statue is located was named after one of the youngest Jewish victims in Nijmegen: Kitty (Kaatje) the Wise. This young woman has become the symbol of the Jewish people of Nijmegen who were deported and never came back.

The Kruittoren is a remnant of the old ramparts of Nijmegen and is located on the Parkweg, on the edge of the Kronenburgerpark. The tower was erected in 1426 and is about 30 meters high. In the nineteenth century, when selling the fortifications, the state deliberately kept the tower in ownership in order to prevent the tower from being demolished. The tower was owned by the Government Buildings Agency until 15 January 2016, but was then transferred to the National Monuments Organisation (NMo).
