Brabant Remembers & Europe Remembers
75 personal life changing war stories

In 2019 and 2020 we will be celebrating 75 years of peace in Europe. During the Second World War the paths crossed for many soldiers and civilians at home and abroad and their lives were changed dramatically and forever. Brabant Remembers collects, preserves and presents 75 personal stories that took place in our province in which amazing subjects are discussed in various perspectives. Brabant Remembers aims to recount these unusual and inspiring stories together with the dilemmas which faced these people. By recounting the past and present, the people and places, these stories will remain relevant in this day and age, and will remain clear and comprehendible to young people in particular.

With a view to the activities that will take place in 2019 and 2020, Brabant Remembers has developed an extensive cultural programme with various WWII heritage partners, museums and local authorities, in which the dilemmas and life-changing stories of the soldiers and civilians who took part in the war are a central theme.

We would like to invite you to the Brabant Remembers press conference.:
