WE WILL REMEMBER THEM
The organisation was set up to pay tribute to those young Canadian soldiers who lost their lives so far away from home fighting for our freedom. In May 2020 we will mark the 75th anniversary of liberation at the Groesbeek Canadian War Cemetery. Most of their comrades and fellow soldiers who are still living are not able to make the trip over from Canada to do this any longer. So it is up to us to remember them.
When you realize that there are 2590 names on the headstones and 1029 names of missing soldiers on the Memorial Wall, you begin to feel the enormity of their sacrifice. And not to forget the headstones of unidentified casualties with only the words: ‘Known unto God’. We would like to recognize every single soldier by a photo and the story of his life, so they will never be forgotten.
Please feel free to share the attached brochure with your Canadian connections to spread the word and find more soldiers and their families. Faces To Graves.pdf
