Today is 'dodenherdenking', the day we Dutch commemorate the dead of WWII and after. It's not observed as widely as I think it should be, but there is a nation-wide 2 minute silence today, and there are ceremonies in the bigger cities and the ones hardest hit by the war.

Dodenherdenking 2018, The Dutch flag at half mast in Rotterdam, perhaps the Dutch city the hardest hit during WWII.

Join me in a moment of silence for the Dutch dead of WWII, who fought for freedom no less bravely than anyone else, on the seas and on the land, against the Japanese aggressors and German occupiers, laying down their lives for their country despite outdated equipment and inferior numbers. And, maybe, if you are so inclined, raise a beer to them as well.
