Freedom

Today May 5 is Bevrijdingsdag (Liberation Day), this day marks the end of WW2 and we celebrate the fact that we live in freedom. But it is also a day on which we reflect on the lack of freedom elsewhere in the world: at the many Liberation Festivals that are held today, young people are made aware of the fact that freedom is not something they should take for granted.

If you would like to read more about the meaning of May 4 (Remembrance Day) and May 5 in the Netherlands please visit the official website HERE.

I made this photo of a pavement stone in Utrecht a few years ago.

  1. Obviously we don't celebrate this day here in Germany... but I hope the world does get a little more freedom, especially for women.
