Commemorating those who fell by 


  • 418 views4 September 2013

4 May 2010 – Every year in the Netherlands the victims of World War II are commemorated.

TO THEM WE OWE OUR FREEDOM….

The World War II Netherlands American Cemetery and Memorial is a war cemetery which lies in the village of Margraten six miles east of Maastricht, in the most southern part of The Netherlands. It is administered by the American Battle Monuments Commission.

The cemetery site has a rich historical background, lying near the famous Cologne-Boulogne highway, originally built by the Romans and used by Julius Caesar during his campaign in that area. The highway was also used by Charlemagne, Charles V, Napoleon, and Kaiser Wilhelm II. In May 1940, Hitler’s legions advanced over the route of the old Roman highway, overwhelming the Low Countries. In September 1944, German troops once more used the highway for the withdrawal from the countries occupied for four years.
