This is an image of a war memorial in the Netherlands, number:



Een herdenkingsmonument ter nagedachtenis aan de 102.000 omgekomen Nederlandse Joden in het concentratiekamp Auschwitz.

Het monument is in 1977 ontworpen door schrijver en beeldend kunstenaar Jan Wolkers (1925-2007). Het monument is opgebouwd uit gebroken spiegels en het kent het opschrift 'Nooit meer Auschwitz'. In de spiegels reflecteert de lucht. Volgens Wolkers symboliseren de gebroken spiegels dat de hemel na Auschwitz nooit meer ongeschonden is: "De hemel blijft voorgoed geschonden. Het is een godsgruwelijke aanslag op alles waar een mens voor staat".


Er zijn overigens plannen voor een nieuw monument:

This monument was created (1977) by Dutch writer and artist Jan Wolkers, in memory of the 102.000 Dutch-Jewish victims of Auschwitz. The monument is made up of broken mirrors and can be found in the Wertheimpark. According to Wolkers, the mirrors represent the thought that “heaven is no longer unbroken since Auschwitz”.
