  • This bronze sculpture, by Carel Kneulman, erected in 1960 in the center of Spui Plein, depicts a street brat, whose name was Henri Knap. In 1947, when she was only 10 years old, she saved a dog that had fallen into the canal from drowning, and became the symbol of all the street children of Amsterdam, always looking for trouble, but with a heart of gold. In the 1960s it was one of the meeting places of the youth protest movement.

  • On the way to Spui, we got off on the Koningsplein tram on the second tram, and it was in a small square where the road was curved. It's a pretty boy statue, but i don't know what it was to commemorate. The pedestal had letters written on it, but i didn't know anything other than the number 1960.

  • On Saturday the first of June 2019 I joined a Comedy Walk in the center of Amsterdam (the Netherlands), which started at statue ‘t Lieverdje and was led by (hard)Kor Hoebe. Funniest dude ever!❗️🤣 Not only did he give us a great tour (almost got mixed up in a very colourful Surinam Festival, 💃🏽🎉🕺🏾showing us the WW-II Nazi-headquarters, ending at the Gay Monument🌈, telling us about bringing home one X-Mas Eve his best - gay - friend to his deep-religeous (former) anti-gay mum, who landed enthusiastically on her doorstep screaming “Hi, I’m Kevin! So, where are the twelve men?”). He also showed us a lovely chapel and shared some historical information with us, which I found very interesting. I am definitely planning on doing this more often (also with other comedians), 👣because I know: whether it will be raining or not, I will be laughing all the way!❗️✨👌
