A small update to this story.
The Amsterdam broadcaster AT5 reports that the small WW2 memorial will return to its former place. The borough council for De Baarsjes made this decision during an emergeny neeting after protests from ex-resistance associations, the Central Information and Documentation centre Israel (CIDI) and the National Institute of War Documentation (NIOD). A spokesman for the NIOD called the earlier suggestion to not return the memorial 'political correctness gone too far'.
Glad to see common sense prevailing at least some of the time.
