Memorial Rozenoord

On 1 May 2015, the Rozenoord monument was unveiled in the Amstelpark in Amsterdam.

Visitors to the Rozenoord monument see a large installation consisting of a hundred seats. The chairs are apparently scattered randomly across the field, as if they were still in use a few minutes ago. The seats are arranged according to the eight dates on which the victims were shot. There is a plaque for the unknown executed.

On 18 September 2018, the monument that initially consisted of 100 seats was supplemented with 6 seats.
