AMSTERDAM – The Netherlands Auschwitz Committee wants to set up a "Wall of Names" bearing the names of all 110,000 Dutch who were killed in Nazi concentration camps during World War II.

The committee would like to see the wall built in the Wertheim park in Amsterdam, where Jan Wolkers Auschwitz monument stands.

The committee hopes that the Wall of Names can be completed in the course of 2009, a spokesperson said on Monday. The names will represent people of all different backgrounds who ended up in the camps.

Not on Dutch Jews will be listed on the wall, but also resistance fighters and political prisoners.
