The Juno Beach Centre was pleased to welcome the public to the Commemorative Ceremony Liberation of the Netherlands.
Every year on May 8, Canadians commemorate Victory in Europe and the liberation of the countries that were occupied and devastated during the Second World War. On May 8, 2018 at the Juno Beach Centre, we took part in this homage with a ceremony in tribute to the friendship between Canadians and the Dutch people. We remembered the men and women in uniform who fought for peace throughout the Second World War, the civilians who survived inhumane conditions, and all those who lost their lives.
Thank you to all of the elected officials and dignitaries in attendance, members of the military, and to all French, Dutch and Canadian guests.
