    "Fan 'e tiid" Monument

    by pieter_jan_v Written Sep 5, 2012

    Favorite thing: In the South part of the village the "Fan 'e tiid" monument has been made in 2000 as part of the Simmer 2000 project, where the Frisian people were encouraged to get back to their roots and participate in a cultural event.

    The many stones in the base of the monument carry names and hand imprints of local people.

    The monument is placed at the Hegebeintumerdyk
    .

    WWII Monument

    by pieter_jan_v Written Sep 3, 2012

    Favorite thing: At the Vrijhof a monument is placed as a remembrance for the victims of World War II.
    The monument is called "As ’t nedich is” and it is an expression of the resistance of the local population against the German occupation.
    The names of 18 local people are place on a plaquette at the monument.
