Loeki Metz and the Jewish Monument in Rotterdam (2017)


Aad Hoogendoorn

The publication Loeki Metz and the Jewish Monument in Rotterdam is an essay written by Siebe Thissen about the development of the Jewish Monument in Rotterdam. The Jewish Monument was produced in 1967 by artist Loeki Metz. The monument was the first reminder of Jewish victims of the Shoah in Rotterdam and concerned a gift from the Tribute of Honor to Jewish fellow citizens, who thereby apologized to the Jewish community.

In his essay Loeki Metz and the Jewish Monument in Rotterdam Thissen describes the difficult creation of the monument, which he calls illustrative of the equally difficult way in which Rotterdam (and the Netherlands) dealt with returned Jews after the war. In this area of ​​tension, the perseverance of the sculptor Loeki Metz commands admiration.
