Update - unfortunately the event will not take place this year due to government measures and RIVM guidelines on Covid19/Corona.
Just like during Operation Market Garden in 1944, planes dropped almost 2000 paratroopers above the Ginkelse Heide. During the Airborne landings and Commemoration on September 19, 2020, the brave fighters who fought for our freedom 76 years ago will be commemorated.
In the presence of the last veterans, the memorial at 11:00 am commemorates the events and victims at the Airborne monument. On this day it will be remembered how valuable our peace and security is. This event is suitable for young and old and free of charge. It starts at 09.00 in the morning and lasts until 17.00 in the afternoon and takes place on the Ginkelse Heide, in Ede.
