War Memorial Oppenhuizerweg

The civilian victims of the war in the city of Sneek are commemorated with a monument on the Oppenhuizerweg. The monument consists of a sculpture of two people holding a book above their heads. By doing so, they symbolize the unity of the Sneker people during the occupation period. Below the two figures the text on the front reads: People in need, unity great. On the back is the coat of arms of Sneek. The sandstone monument was created by sculptor Nico Onkenhout (1918-1989). It was unveiled in 1956.
