While I was for business in the south of the Netherlands, I visited Margraten. Here is the Netherlands American Cemetery and Memorial situated. It is Europe’s third largest war cemetery for unidentified soldiers who died in the second World War. 8,301 soldiers are buried there under long rows of white crosses and stars of David. All graves are adopted by locals, who attend the graves and lay flowers every now and then.
It is very impressive and it makes you very humble to walk along those graves. So many men died for our freedom.
