Open Monument Day

Open Monument Day September 10th 2005
Thanks to the co-operation of the present owner, The Vineyard Community Dieren, it was possible for the council members of the Foundation “De Dierense Sjoel” to be present in the former synagogue on Spoorstraat 34 in Dieren during Open Monument Day and to inform interested visitors about the plans to restore the building to its former function. More than 150 people made use of the opportunity to visit the small building. Neighbours, former neighbours, inhabitants living in the close vicinity or further away, members of the Community for Progressive Judaism Gelderland as possible future users, members of the former Jewish Community of Dieren, all day people came and showed their interest in the history and the future of the building. Also Mr. J.Jansen, Alderman in charge of the preservation of monuments and historic buildings, showed his interest by his presence.
