Mappery For the love of maps

Tilburg Library Holocaust Memorial

Reinder share this with me

Dear friends

Here you see a mixture of art and historical awareness: on the tiles are names of mainly Jewish people that were killed in World War Two. The names are adopted by Tilburgers who live now and feel the need of keeping some memories alive. On the map is indicated where these people lived. 

BTW: this project was executed in other cities as well. 



And then he followed up with this pic, which brought a tear to my eye
