Today is the 4th of May. In the Netherlands, this means that it’s ‘dodenherdenking’ ( Remembrance Day). We honor those who have died in wars and during peace operations, since the start of the Second World War. At 08:00PM (Amsterdam timezone), two minutes of silence are observed throughout the Netherlands.
Tomorrow, the 5th of May, is bevrijdingsdag (Liberation Day). We will commemorate our liberation from the German occupation. This year is the 70th Anniversary of the Liberation of the Netherlands.
