Plaque Raid Beverwijk

Text on the plaque:
'On 16 april 1944, 486 young men from here were taken away by the occupiers and many of them never returned.'[/ i]

The plaque is placed in memory of the young men from Beverwijk who had to work for the Nazis in Germany.

The plaque was placed in 1969 and since 2005 an extra list of 65 young men who never returned is attached. This list will be further expanded.
