In the night of 21 January 1943, the German occupiers raid and clear Het Apeldoornsche Bosch. Close to 1300 people, patients and staff, are sent to Auschwitz. Nobody returns. Stichting Apeldoornsche Bosch (The Apeldoornsche Bosch Foundation) is connected to the former site and history of the Jewish psychiatric institution of the same name, which was abruptly raided and cleared by the German occupiers in January 1943. The Stichting brings this story to the attention of the public in different ways and through various activities, inviting people to reflect and enter into dialogue about antisemitism, racism and discrimination in the past and the present.
