Confinement, one from the past

Rotterdam Daily Photo: Confinement, one from the past

I was unable to take a photo today. Therefore, one from the archive made in April 2010. Why a photo of a wall? This wall on Stieltjesstraat is part of Loods (shed) 24, located during WWII on Entrepotstraat. Loods 24 was used as a gathering place for the deportation of Jews during the Second World War by the German occupying forces and was located on a closed area of ​​the Municipal Port Institutions in South Rotterdam.
Between July 30, 1942 and April 22, 1943, 6,536 people were deported via Loods 24. The vast majority of the Jews, who were transported through Loods 24, were murdered in Sobibór and Auschwitz-Birkenau.
