Bridge number 31 De Tante Saarbrug some History

This bridge was named Aunt Saar after Sara Bachrach a local florist.
In 1947, her thirty-five years of business was lavishly celebrated, although she spent much of her life in poverty. In addition, as a Jewish woman, she spent part of the Second World War in various concentration camps and lost a number of children and grandchildren there. She became an honorary citizen of Amsterdam and was buried in the Jewish cemetery in Muiderberg.

The nameplates were unveiled on November 20, 2019 in the presence of some of her family members.
