The Faces of Groesbeek

H.R.H. Princess Margriet visited the photo exhibition The Faces of Groesbeek at the Canadian War Cemetery in Groesbeek on May 3, 2021. The Mayor of Groesbeek, Mark Slinkman and Her Excellency, the Ambassador of Canada, Lisa Helfand welcomed her on arrival.
At the cemetery H.R.H. Princess was also welcomed by the chairman and vice-chairman of our foundation and introduced to the other board members and also to the Area Director West and Central Europe of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, Geert Bekaert.
H.R.H. Princess was shown around and at various graves one of the members of our Research Team told a short life story. Also two students of the Canisius College in Nijmegen told the life story they wrote, in the presence of their teacher.

With due regard for the corona measures, the photo exhibition can be visited until 17 May.

The photo exhibition is made possible by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, the Municipality of Berg en Dal and many sponsors.

The Groesbeek Canadian War Cemetery was built by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. They honour and care for the men and women of the Commonwealth forces who died in the First and Second World Wars, ensuring they will never be forgotten. Funded by six Member Governments, our work began with building, and now maintaining, cemeteries at 23,000 locations all over the world.
