Guest DrPretender Posted May 4, 2012 Share Posted May 4, 2012 On the 4th of may the Dutch remembrance all the fallen (Dodenherdenking). It commemorates all civilians and members of the armed forces of the Kingdom of the Netherlands who have died in wars or peacekeeping missions since the outbreak of World War II. Until 1961, the commemoration only related to the Dutch victims of World War II. Since 1961, the victims of other military conflicts (such as the Indonesian National Revolution in Indonesia) and peacekeeping missions (such as in Lebanon or Bosnia) are remembered on May 4 as well. Let the fallen who fought for our freedom be remembered and let it give us hope that we can keep peace or bring peace everywhere were there is no peace.
