Submit your memory

Our commemorative newspaper and our book series have been published, which has brought the print project to an end. But there are more stories to tell. If you would like to share your story about your experiences during World War II, related to the Netherlands, the Dutch East Indies, the expatriate Dutch or the Dutch armed forces, we would be very happy to receive it and publish it on our website. We believe that while we still can, we should preserve the memories of the people who have first-hand experiences to share. We are looking for any stories that can help us, the lucky ones who did not have to live through Nazi or Japanese occupation, understand what happened in those five devastating years, from 1940 until 1945. No memory is too small or insignificant, they all add up to an overall picture.

Please submit your story (in English) to: and put in the subject line Readers Remember…
