Former Dutch Jewish Girls Orphanage

On the former Jewish orphanage is a plaque with this text:

This house was an orphanage for Jewish girls from 1861 to 1943.
In 1889 the orphanage was extended to include the neighbouring house.
On February 10, 1943 the girls and their attendants were
deported to the extermination camp Sobibor.
Sixty years later, the occupants had the orphanage's
two original stone plaques restored.
