This unique urn with a representation of standing and lying men in relief was designed by Hildo Krop in 1948. The urn is made of glazed ceramics, partly covered with gold. Probably this urn was intended for the memorial wall behind the National Monument on Dam Square, a World War II monument in Amsterdam. Eleven urns with soil are placed in this semicircular memorial wall. This soil comes from World War II execution grounds and war cemeteries from the then eleven Dutch provinces and from the former Dutch East Indies, present-day Indonesia. The urn by Krop has not been given a place in this wall, because he did not agree with the fact that earth from Indonesia was also placed here.
