|"Information plaque Jewish monument
During remembrance day, last week in Strijen, an informationplaque was revealed at the Jewish monument in the Kerkstraat.
The town of Strijen sometimes gets reactions from shocked visitors to the Jewish monument. They are astonished at the broken off piece of the Star of David. People assume it is work of vandals. Many of them don't know, that this is done on purpose by the designer. It is actually meant to be that way.
The broken off piece of stone symbolizes de attempt to destroy the roots of the Jews. Because many people don't know this, the idea of an informationplaque was born with in it a short explanation about how the Jewish monument came about and the meaning of it. The text on the plaque was put together with the help of the descendants.
The revealing was done by the 16 year old Gina Tutunji (Zwarenstein Tutunji as of 2013), on behalf of the affected Jewish families, the van Coevordens, Kleinkramer and Zwarenstein. Gina is a descendant of the Zwarenstein family."
