Utrecht – Dutch wooden ‘Forbidden for Jews’ sign

In 1941 the freedom of movement of the Dutch Jews was increasingly restricted.

For example, people could no longer just go to the swimming pool, a cafe, the market, the zoo or a park.

At the open-air areas, wooden signs with the text ‘Forbidden for Jews’ were placed.

This wooden sign hung during the war in the Wilhelminapark in Utrecht in the Netherlands and it has the city stamp of Amsterdam.
