A sea of flowers after the commemoration
On September 17th, 1944, paratroopers of the 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment landed near Eerde.
The liberation is celebrated annually on this day, although this was only the beginning of the liberation and there were more victims in the days that followed than during the occupation. Gratitude and appreciation for the liberators are central to the commemoration on September 17th.
