Joseph Glatt is a granite sculptor that designed mostly tombstones for Jewish families. In his workshop are still old gravestones lying around. Joseph Glatt also designed a memorial stone, the Jewish resistance monument in Amsterdam. A metre high black granite pillar incised with the stone tablets. On the side, the text of the prophet Jeremiah laments in Dutch and Hebrew. The building was voted ugliest building of the region last year and will soon be demolished.
