Bridge to Liberation

The key words surrounding the Battle of Arnhem are commemorating, understanding and experiencing. Through the official commemoration and Bridge to Liberation, we want to allow people to experience the impact of war and the value of freedom together through personal stories.

The show begins at 8.30 pm and ends at 10.00 pm. Please be on time!

The viewing areas for the public are located in the Jacob Groenewoud park on the lower Rijnkade Arnhem Noord. We recommend that you arrive before 8.00 pm. Route

THE BATTLE OF ARNHEM

During the commemoration week, residents from the Arnhem region will reflect in depth on the efforts of Allied forces to put an end to the Second World War quickly. It is a tribute to the courage and perseverance of the soldiers during the Battle of Arnhem. During these commemorations the focus is respectfully on the veterans, the fallen soldiers, and their families.

It is 75 years ago this year that the Battle of Arnhem took place as part of Operation Market Garden. We call this a jubilee year. During a jubilee year, the activities and events are larger and more elaborate.

Slag om Arnhem

Inwoners uit de regio Arnhem staan in de herdenkingsweek uitgebreid stil bij de inspanningen van geallieerde strijdkrachten om snel een einde aan de Tweede Wereldoorlog te maken. Het is een eerbetoon aan de moed en het doorzettingsvermogen van de soldaten tijdens de Slag om Arnhem.  Tijdens deze herdenkingen wordt op respectvolle wijze aandacht geschonken aan de veteranen, de gesneuvelde soldaten en hun familie.

Het is dit jaar 75 jaar geleden dat de Slag om Arnhem, als onderdeel van Operatie Market Graden, plaatsvond. We noemen dat een kroonjaar. Tijdens een kroonjaar zijn de activiteiten en evenementen groter en uitgebreider.
