Valkenswaard

WAR CEMeTRY

PROJECTS

As this is a side project of the foundation “Erfgoed 40-45, gemeenten Valkenswaard en Waalre”, the projects below are being done in their name.

In September 2015 the book “De weg naar Valkenswaard” was published. Unfortunately the book is only in Dutch. Hopefully a English translation will follow.

We do lectures at schools, community halls and businesses. We organise expositions and static shows to get the stories more known. This way we make sure that the men are not forgotten.

Valkenswaard

WAR CEMeTRY

We organise and accompany battlefield tours. The main focus is the vicinity of Valkenswaard, Holland but sometimes we do other battlefields also.

Battlefield tours

We always try to be at any commemoration at the Valkenswaard war cemetery. Further more we try to visit the site as much as possible to be able to give the latest information at requests.

Attending commemorations

We do a lot off research to make complete stories around the men buried in the cemetery. This is been done in archives and in the field.

Field work and research

We find relatives of the fallen soldiers and keep in contact. Many times, we can tell new facts about their fallen loved ones. We send them up to date information about the graves and commemorations.
