February Strike
Poster design

‘The Strike of February 1941’ was a general strike organized during World War II in the Netherlands against the anti-Jewish measures and activities of the Nazis.

The strike is remembered each year on 25 February, with a march past the Dokwerker, the memorial made for the strike in 1951 and first revealed in December 1952. This statue was made by Dutch sculptor Mari Andriessen. All political parties, as well as the city public transport authorities and organisations of Holocaust survivors participate in the remembrance.
