Long Description:
De twee kleine figuren stellen de broers Jan en Gerrit Vergeer voor. Ze hebben geen kleding aan om juist de kwetsbare tijd van de oorlog te laten zien. De broers waren drukkers in het verzet en drukten illegale kranten in Woerden. Ze werden opgepakt op een juninacht in 1944 en naar kamp Sieburg gebracht. Een paar maanden voordat de oorlog eindigde, zijn ze overleden aan de vlektyfus. De broers houden beide druk attributen vast en staan op wat lijkt een gedrukte krant. De sokkel bestaat uit drie kleuren die de nationale vlag van Nederland moet voorstellen.

------------------------
The two small figures represent the brothers Jan and Gerrit Vergeer. They have no clothes on to show the vulnerable time of the war. The brothers were printers in the resistance and printed illegal newspapers in Woerden. They were arrested on a June night in 1944 and taken to camp Sieburg. A few months before the war ended, they died of typhus. The brothers are both holding printing attributes and standing on what appears to be a printed newspaper. The pedestal consists of three colours that are supposed to represent the national flag of the Netherlands.
