This memorial is located in the former Detention Center in Groningen. It commemorates the political prisoners who were held here during the German occupation years 1940 - 1945.
The stone was unveiled on July 12, 1947 by the Queen's Adjutant during that period. There are 2 pictures of the unveiling and a shield of the N.V.E.P.G (Dutch Association for Ex Political Prisoners).
The memorial also includes a white urn with ashes of victims from concentration camps in Germany, 1940 - 1945.
