Netherlands: medal for the Jewish Hospital and Home, circa. 1938; bronze, 60mm, heavy weight of about half a kilogram; in EF: bronze medal in heavy octagonal base, depicting elderly person lying in bed with Star of David, setting sun and the letters "JL" ("Joodse Invaliden" - Jewish Disabled) in the background. The Dutch legend below says "Peaceful Twilight Hours". The society sponsoring this hospital was founded in 1911 to provide shelter for the frail and elderly in a Jewish environment but funding was entirely from private (not governmental) sources and the difficulty in raising the needed funds delayed its establishment until 1926, and the hospital-home moved to a newer building in 1938, the event which is probably commemorated by this medal ( only 100 were struck); in March 1943 the entire staff and patients of the home were deported during the Holocaust. Unlisted in Polak .
