Unfortunately, like so many other events, this has been cancelled. It will now take place in May 2021. Rather than call it the 76th anniversary, it has been adopted in the Netherlands to call it 75+1. This acknowledges the 75th anniversary but also allows us to recognise the delay due to Covid-19. Just like 75 years ago, normal life has been put on hold and sacrifices are being made. However, this extra time allows us to search for more photos of buried soldiers. If you can help by donating some time for researching or contributing to the costs of the mounted photos, please see below.

A new logo has been designed by a member of the Royal Canadian Legion branch 005, Martin van de Poel. You are free to use the logo with no copyright restrictions.

Liberation and remembrance activities for the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the eastern part of the Netherlands will take place in Groesbeek from 2 to 16 May 2020.

During the event called "Faces of Groesbeek", photos will be placed at the graves of the Canadian Soldiers for which the charity, Faces To Graves, already has a photo. The opening ceremony will take place in the afternoon of 2 May.

If you have a photo or information about one of the soldiers buried at Groesbeek, please contact: info@facestograves.nl

In order to make this event possible, you can take part in the ‘Donate a photo’ promotion. €10 or $15 for one photo, and deposit your contribution as follows:
IBAN: NL78 ABNA 0592 2443 93
Quoting "May 2020 NCCC"
