A Sign from the Period of Nazi Occupation of Hilversum, Holland: “Forbidden for Jews…!”

A wooden sign in Dutch with the words: “Forbidden for Jews”

The sign was hung in a tennis court in the city of Hilversum, Holland and was secretly removed by the youth W. Niemoeller in 1942.
In the corner of the sign is the signature and stamp of the city: “Signed: Attorney General Feitsma Functioning as Regional Chief of Police”

The youth W. Niemoeller in front of his home during the war. Note the front window crossed with tape because of the bombings. Hilversum, Holland, 1942
