As many countries in the world we remember these days the victims of World War II. At Dam square in Amsterdam you can find this text between the cobblestones. It refers to a tragedy that took place here on May 7, 1945. Two days after the Capitulation discussion in Wageningen the liberation was already celebrated at Dam square when suddenly a shooting came from a balcony of a building where German soldiers had been hid. People had no way to hide at the square and 32 of them were killed and 100 wounded.
In 2016 32 name stones are placed between the cobblestones with the names of the victims.
The next day the Canadian liberation troops entered Amsterdam when the Germans finally had capitulated.
