The Hague
Remembrance of the Dead (Dutch: Dodenherdenking) is held annually on May 4 in the Netherlands. The Waalsdorpervlakte near the Hague, where many Dutch resistance fighters were executed during the war has some memorials, one of them is this bell. This bell is only rung every 4th of May up to 20:00h. From 20:00h there will be a 2 minute silence that is observed by all in The Netherlands. The bell was given by the people of The Hague on 30 april 1959. On the bell there is an inscription by prof. mr. R.P. Cleveringa: Ik luid tot roem en volging van die hun leven gaven tot wering van onrecht, tot winning der vrijheid en tot waring en verheffing van al Neerlands geestelijk goed. #bell #den_haag #holland #klok #the_hague #the_netherlands #waalsdorper_vlakte
