Memorial "The Explosion" Middelburg
The plaque is affixed to each fragment of the memorial "The Explosion" of Ko de Jonge in Middelburg. The memorial is erected in 1988.
They are wall fragments of the eighteenth century patrician "The Dolphin" at the Lange Delft 64. The building was the home of the Provincial Library since 1898. It is entirely burned out on May 17, 1940.
These fragments are also known as the "stumbling stones". You have to be careful in some places where you walk in the center of Middelburg.
They lie in the Plein 1940, in the Lange Delft, Onder den Toren, Walplein, Koorkerkhof, Sint-Pieterstraat, the Balans, Groenmarkt, Bachtensteene, Stadhuisstraat, Zusterstraat, Hagepreekgang, Dwarskaai, and the Rotterdamse kaai in Middelburg
The weapon of this patrician is nowadays in Kleverskerke.
There are some smaller pieces in the Zeeland library.
