Nobody deserves to be forgotten

Both 2019 and 2020 will be remarkable years. During these years, people from all over the world will commemorate and celebrate the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II. The end of the war in the Netherlands came closer when U.S. soldiers crossed the border near the town of Mesch on September 12, 1944, which became the first town to be liberated. However, it would take until May 5, 1945 before the country was fully liberated. And that liberation came at a heavy price for those who fought for it. That is why we will say thank you to our American liberators who have been buried in the Netherlands American Cemetery and Memorial in the town of Margraten. We pay tribute to them by decorating their graves and names on the Walls of the Missing with a photo in 2021. Join us in our quest for the missing faces and help to remember to those who sacrificed their all for our freedom.

 

Request a Copy of a Soldier's Photo

Would you like to have a copy of a soldier's photo as has been used during The Faces of Margraten tribute? In September we temporarily offer the possibility to request your own copy of that photo. What's more, by requesting your own copy, you also support The Faces of Margraten tribute as the proceeds will be used to have new soldiers' photos printed for the 2018 tribute.

IMG 0458The costs for having a photo printed are approximately 6 dollars per copy, depending on the exchange rate. This price has been based on the costs of having two photos printed on aluminium (see photo): namely the photo that you have requested a copy of and the photo of a soldier that has been found since the most recent tribute in May of this year. So you help us to give a face to even more soldiers in 2018!
