Joseph van West
Bereikte de leeftijd van 46 jaar
Blasiusstraat 98 I, Amsterdam
I am commemorating Joseph van West, who lived in the same building I live in now.
Born on 27th August, 1896, Joseph first lived at near the Waterlooplein 189 until May, 1905, when the West family moved to Blasiusstraat 121. He trained as a diamond worker.
In 1929 he married Lea Kat, who lived a few doors away with her family at Blasiusstraat 116. Joseph and Lea had three children: Bloeme, Louis and Vogelina. They lived together at Blasiusstraat 98-I.
Joseph was murdered on February 28th, 1943, aged 46. His wife and their three children had been murdered a few weeks earlier.
