Van februari tot augustus 1945 was deze kerk de Gemeentelijke Doodenbewaarplaats.

Door ontbering, honger en duits geweld stierven te Amsterdam in het laatste oorlogsjaar meer mensen dan begraven konden worden.

Hier was hun tijdelijke rustplaats.

[English translation:]

From February to August 1945 this church was the Municipal Morgue.

Through deprivation, hunger and German violence, more people died in Amsterdam in the last year of war than could be buried.

This was their temporary resting place.
