National Committee 4 and 5 May


National Committee 4 and 5 May visit Euronext

John Bakker, board member of the National Committee 4 and 5 May and a member of the National Fund 4 and 5 May, opens trading at the Amsterdam exchange on Liberation Day.

On 4 May we commemorate all war victims who died during and after World Way 2. On 5 May, we celebrate that we live in freedom for over 70 years. Freedom only becomes meaningful if you know what it means to not be free. That this freedom is fragile is apparent every day. Freedom needs more than silent nurturing. The preservation of a free society also requires responsibility. The organizations of all festivities is not possible without all business and volunteers who contribute to this both at national and local level.

A new memorial will be unveiled on Dam square in Amsterdam in the presence of Mayor of Amsterdam, Eberhard van der Laan. The memorial commemorates the 31 known victims who perished during the shooting on the Dam square on May 7th, 1945, two days after the German capitulation in the Netherlands. Intensive research into this event by Foundation Memorial 2015 for Dam Victims May 7th, 1945 led to the actual number and names of the victims.
