Het Huis Des Levens is a carved Portland stone monument to the oldest Jewish cemetery in Groningen, The Netherlands. The cemetery fell in disrepair after the second world war, and was removed from this site in 1954 and 2005 to make way for urban developments. Commissioned by Stichting Historisch Joods Groningen. Text line from Ronald Ohlsen: Hier was het huis van de gedachte muren… (Here was the house with the imagined walls)
