Remembrance Day

Tonight Holland remembers all civilians and soldiers of the Kingdom of the Netherlands who were killed in war situations and peace operations, anywhere in the world, since May 10th 1940, the day on which Nazi Germany invaded the Netherlands. Tomorrow the country celebrates its Liberation from the Nazi occupation. I will celebrate that day with breakfast in Tel Aviv ( with an Israeli blogger whom I have come to consider as a friend ), lunch in Jerusalem ( with a fellow-historian ), and after that an interview with a major player in Israeli politics. The above picture I took one year and one day ago, at the war monument in the city where I grew up. I already posted the picture last year.
