In November 1938, after ‘the night of broken windows’, many thousands of Jews tried to flee from Hitler’s Germany to the Western European countries that were still free. Just when the situation was at its most urgent, the borders closed everywhere.

With stories, music, flowers and silence, we commemorate the victims. The commemoration is organised for and by IJburgers: committee, choir, brass band, TV and young people.
