Liberation Day History
Liberation Day serves to commemorate the victims of World War II and to celebrate the Netherlands' liberation from the Nazis after World War II. WWII was one of the most devastating wars in the history of humankind. Combining two aspects of the War into one weekend serves as a way to embrace both sides of the multi-dimensional war - the cost of human life and the relief of freedom.
Remembrance Day takes place on May 4 while Liberation Day takes place on May 5. The tradition of remembrance in the Netherlands developed through local events, some reference the atrocities of concentration camps while others mark specific campaigns, such as the bombardment of Rotterdam.
