Urk youths who dressed up as Nazis apologise to Holocaust survivor

Aspect of a single of the photographs which were positioned on the web

A group of young males from the former island of Urk who dressed up as Nazis pretending to focus on a person in jail clothes and putting on a star of David as a protest in opposition to Covid steps, have apologised in person to a Holocaust survivor.

Eighty-12 months-old Lous Steenhuis-Hoepelman, who was sent to several focus camps during Globe War II, invited the group for a speak right after seeing the photographs on September 11.

Urk, a staunchly Protestant village, has been the scene of some of the most vehement protests versus vaccination and Covid actions and has the lowest vaccination amount in the region.

The boys brought bouquets and apologised to Steenhuis-Hoepelman who explained to them about her encounters at Bergen-Belsen and Westerbork.

They now realize the emotional upset their behaviour has prompted, Urk area council and the Israel facts and documentation centre CIDI advised community broadcaster Omroep Flevoland.

The team will also check out the Westerbork detention centre in the Netherlands in a handful of months time.
