  • Description

    CHURCH BELLS RANG ALL OVER HOLLAND TODAY (WEDNESDAY) TO CELEBRATE THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE LIBERATION - THE GERMANS CAPITULATED AT WAGENINGEN, CENTRAL HOLLAND, ON MAY 5, 1945.

    QUEEN JULIANA, ACCOMPANIED BY PRINCE BERNHARD, REVIEWED A LARGE MILITARY PARADE AT AMERSFOORT.

    PAGEANTS WERE HELD THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY. AT WAGENINGEN, NEARLY 400 "LIBERTY TORCHES" WERE LIGHTED IN THE PRESENCE OF PRINCE BERNHARD.

    (AGAINST GALLANT BUT UNAVAILING OPPOSITION, GERMANY'S MASSED PANZER FORCES ENTERED HOLLAND ON MAY 10, 1940. IN LESS THAN A WEEK, THE NETHERLANDS HAD BEEN LAID PROSTRATE, BUT DUTCH RESISTANCE WAS FAR FROM OVER. 'FREE NETHERLANDS' FORCES CONTINUED TO FIGHT THE NAZIS BY LAND, SEA AND AIR UNTIL IT WAS THE TURN OF THE INVADERS TO LAY DOWN THEIR ARMS ON MAY 5, 1945 - ALMOST FIVE YEARS TO THE DAY AFTER THEY HAD ATTACKED HOLLAND).
