Amsterdam moves postcard-sized Shoah plaque after residents complain

In their motion, the two residents said they found it too confrontational to have to constantly be reminded, because of the memorial cobblestone, of the deportation and murder of Elte, a 51-year-old accountant who died at a Nazi concentration camp in 1945. They also argued it “compromises the atmosphere” of their upscale neighborhood and their privacy and that of their children because it attracts onlookers.

    I’m guessing this involves the religion of pieces.

    They should replace it with a similar plaque with the message “Shoah memorial removed at request of two residents”.
