Levenslicht Holocaust Monument commemorates the 104,000 Dutch Holocaust victims with 104,000 specially developed luminescent stones.

The monument was created in collaboration with the National Committee for 4 and 5 May.

Levenslicht (Light of Life) raises awareness of the consequences that the Holocaust has had in over 170 Dutch municipalities, and provides a public place for contemplation about the Holocaust and the broader importance of freedom.

This project has been longlisted in the installation design project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
