Portugees Israëlietisch Ziekenhuis
Architect: Harry Elte (1880-1944)
Opdrachtgever: Portugees Israëlietisch Gemeente
Bouwjaren: 1915, 1916

De gevelsteen boven de ingang van dit voormalige ziekenhuis toont een pelikaan die haar jongen voedt met haar eigen bloed; het herkenningsteken van de Portugees Israëlitische Gemeente. Het ziekenhuis uit 1916 bood plaats aan 50 patiënten en een kleine afdeling voor oude vrouwen. Op nummer 12 bevond zich het Zusterhuis. Tijdens de oorlog was het ziekenhuis het toneel van gedwongen sterilisaties. Vanaf 1951 kwam hier het joodse bejaardenhuis Beth Sjalom. Nu dient het als jongerenhuisvesting.

Commissioned by: Portugees Israëlietisch Gemeente (Portugese Israelite Community)
Years of Construction: 1915, 1916

The plaque above the entrance to this former hospital represents a pelican feeding its young with its own blood; the memorial symbol of the Portuguese Israelite Community. The hospital dating back to 1916 could accommodate 50 patients and also had a small ward for elderly women. The nurses' residence was located at no. 12. Numerous forced sterilisations took place at this hospital during the war. The Jewish home for the elderly,
Beth Sjalom, was established here in 1951. The building currently serves as a housing unit for young people.
