Artist's Description

A mother pictured praying for her son at the commemoration of the 1992 Bijlmer disaster (October 4th, 2012)
Photographed in Amsterdam, the Netherlands
Copyright © 2013 Steppeland – All rights reserved

A few hundred people were present at the commemoration of the Bijlmer disaster of October 4, 1992, when a Boeing 747 cargo plane of the Israeli airline El Al, crashed into Groeneveen and Klein-Kruitberg flats.
The commemoration started with a multicultural program with speeches from among others Mr. van der Laan, mayor of Amsterdam, and Ds. O. Ru , representative of the survivors and relatives of victims.
Then a silent march was held to the monument around “the tree that saw everything” where a minute of silence was held, followed by the placing of wreaths and flowers.
