Open Jewish Homes Elburg took place on 3 May and attracted approximately 600 visitors.
On Saturday morning, first the names of all 23 Jews from Elburg who died during the Second World War were read. Subsequently various gatherings started in the homes at Beekstraat 38, Beekstraat 19, Jufferenstraat 29 and Bloemstraat 9. Gripping stories were told about the former Jewish residents and Jewish neighbours or children who were hidden. Former child in hiding Loeti Visschraper told at Beekstraat 19 how it was to be in hiding in Elburg (source: Omroep Gelderland).
