Short film offers tour of Dutch Holocaust Memorial of Names by Studio Libeskind

This video guides viewers around a memorial designed by Studio Libeskind in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, which is dedicated to the Dutch victims of the Holocaust.

The Dutch Holocaust Memorial of Names was designed by Studio Libeskind with local office Rijnboutt to honour the 102,000 Jews, Sinti and Roma people who were killed by Nazis during the second world war.

It is characterised by a labyrinth of brick walls that are inscribed with the names of the victims, giving the monument its title. There are also 1,000 blank bricks to honour those who remain unknown.
