The Second World War was not an easy time for TU Delft – then still a technical college. It was a period in which the institution had to guard its survival and its integrity. After the war, the sad balance was drawn up. During the war, at least 180 Delft students, recent graduates and teachers were murdered or died.

DISCOVER THE STORY BEHIND THE WAR MEMORIALS IN TU DELFT AULA
Places of commemoration in and around the Aula
Several places in and around the Aula of TU Delft commemorate this difficult period. Because in 2022 it will be 80 years since many Delft students were murdered because of resistance work, extra attention will be paid this year to the war history of the university. You are invited to take a tour of the building’s places of commemoration.
Places of Commemoration elsewhere
The Executive Board has decided to support two places of commemoration outside of the university: the National Monument Oranjehotel in Scheveningen and the National Holocaust Names Memorial in Amsterdam.
