In Duizend Vreezen
Grote Markt 2a, Rotterdam
Just like house number 27, we know this house at Groote Markt 2a only from photos because it, too, was destroyed during the German bombardment on 14 May 1940.
The house ? probably built around 1570 ? was a corner house. An historic photo shows that the words ‘In Duizend Vreezen’ (literally: In a Thousand Fears) are written on the fa?ade. This name refers to the Spanish siege of Rotterdam in the 16th century. The story goes that the inhabitants, who feared the approaching Spanish army that had massacred everyone in its path, smeared the building with blood from a slaughtered goat so that the Spanish soldiers would think that others had been there before them.
