It emphasizes the city of Rotterdam, which lost its heart (city centre) after the bombing of the city by the Nazi’s the May 1940.

Today Rotterdam is a modern “bubbling” city with great architecture, of which this statue has become an important part.

This is such an extraordinary statue with such an amazing meaning!

War is always a really bad thing, may we(and anybody) never suffer one again.
