Airborne 2020 (English)
On Saturday September 19th 2020, the Airborne Landings and Commemoration - 75 years of freedom will take place, be it in an alternative form.
During the Airborne Landings and Commemoration, we traditionally commemorate the brave fighters who fought for our freedom 76 years ago at Operation Market Garden. We commemorate the events and victims at the Airborne monument. On this day we consider how valuable our freedom and safety is.
Due to the corona crisis all mayor events in the Netherlands have been canceled until at least September 1st 2020. We've decided to continue organizing the Airborne Landings and Commemoration in an alternative form, together with our partners. In the current situation arranging a large-scale commemoration event where almost 100,000 people are close to each other is unjustifiable.
We will inform you about this alternative commemoration as soon as possible. Any suggestions are welcome, among other things we are looking at online alternatives and activities for local schools. We aim towards a commemoration what will honor the legacy and does justice to our veterans.
