Dutch school stalls Shoah memorial to avoid vandalism
A school in a heavily Muslim neighborhood of The Hague delayed plans for a Holocaust monument over vandalism fears.
Gerard Brasjen, a spokesman for the Paul Kruger School, told JTA on Tuesday that the Christian-affiliated school's board had discussed a plan to place a commemorative plaque on the school facade, but the plan stalled "not because of the Jewish-Muslim issue but because it may not be wise in the neighborhood, which is not a peaceful place."
Before the Holocaust, the building of the Paul Kruger School, in the Schilderswijk neighborhood, housed the Joodsch Lyceum, a Jewish high school. Kruger was an Afrikaner national leader.
