Mindesmærker

In the weekend leading up to International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the Dutch theatre initiative Theater Na de Dam presents Theatre of Remembrance. Directors and youngsters from European capitals dive into the history of their own city during the Second World War. Important part of this research into their past are meetings with people who survived the war.  These conversations, full of memories and stories, are the basis of performances throughout Europe. These projects are the international version of youngster projects in the Netherlands that perform throughout the country on the National Commemoration on the 4th of May.

Mindesmærker, a living installation of 10 small monuments, invades the foyer of the royal library. Every monument is brought to live by a young performer, who shares a storie about the Holocaust, persecution or fleeing. The audience can visit one or several monuments of their choice.
