Commemoration of the February Strike at the Jonas Daniel Meijerplein in Amsterdam. The February Strike is a general strike that started on February 25, 1941, in Amsterdam. It was directed against anti-Jewish measures, taken by the German occupiers of the Netherlands. The direct cause were progroms held in the Jewish neighbourhood in Amsterdam. The strike was struck down the next day already, and did not prevent the large scale deportation and murdering of Jews during the remainder of World War II.
