On September 17th 1944, hundreds of paratroopers from the 501 Parachute Infantry Regiment landed near Eerde. Operation Market Garden had started. Every year on this date the people of Eerde celebrate their liberation.
This year, as we celebrated 75 years of freedom, the commemoration was a special one.

Several foreign and domestic organizations attended the ceremony. Also a large group of WWII veterans was present.
