On 9 May 2022, the first ‘Vector of Memory’ in Germany was unveiled in front of the Peace Museum – Bridge of Remagen in the presence of Björn Ingendahl, Mayor of Remagen, Anke Sultan and Volker Thehos, Peace Museum Board Members, and Chance Williams, Project Manager LRE Foundation.
This Vector was produced and installed thanks to the financial support of the German Bundestag and the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in The Hague, which has given its financial support to further develop the Liberation Route Europe since 2020.
“The early capture of the Remagen Bridge by the Americans on March 7, 1945, significantly shortened World War II in Europe, according to experts. Therefore, it has a rightful place on the Liberation Route Europe,” said Mayor Ingendahl.
“Remembering the past is to create a better future. This motto of the LRE Foundation is also fundamental for the work of the Peace Museum,” added Volker Thehos, Board Member of the Peace Museum.
