May 4th is national remembrance day in The Netherlands. The message is the same all over the world: never again!
It has been four years since we wrote a message about the Stolpersteine in Berlin, the bronze plates / stumbling blocks in the sidewalk bearing the names of Jewish people who lived there and died in concentration camps.
Traveling Light wanted to sponsor 7 Stolpersteine and in doing so commemorate the Holocaust victims. Due to changes in the organization, our order was delayed again and again.
We recently came into contact with the Stolpersteine Dordrecht foundation and we have agreed to sponsor 7 Stolpersteine in the city of Dordrecht (Marja's city of birth).
So, closer to home. The organization in Berlin also figured it was more logical to sponsor stolpersteine in our own country. Later this summer the stones will be installed in the streets of Dordrecht in memory of families who were taken and died during the Holocaust.

Individually and as a non profit foundation, we have a 💗for peoples and nations and wherever we go we bring a message of peace and reconciliation made possible by our Jewish Lord Jesus Christ!
