War Graves Foundation
In the Netherlands, 180,000 people have been registered as war victims by the War Graves Foundation. Men, women and children who lost their lives during the Second World War or during violent conflicts afterwards - such as in the former Dutch East Indies and during recent peacekeeping missions.
All these people have a story, no matter how short and simple. The War Graves Foundation wants to keep the memory of these people alive. The foundation does this by collecting and sharing their stories on its website and by maintaining the 50,000 Dutch war graves around the world.
