American Soldiers Honored During Annual Liberation Day Concert in Amsterdam

Fireworks light up the night sky in Amsterdam over the Amstel River as the Liberation concert concludes.

The soldiers took part in a tribute to the allies which included Belgian, British, Canadian, Dutch, French, Norwegian, and Polish soldiers.

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands looked on while the soldiers marched out with other allies.  The concert was broadcast live on television via channel NPO 1 and can be seen by clicking this link. At 1 hour and 23 minutes the tribute to the allies begins.

Thank you to NOS and NPO1 for the amazing footage and to the Nationaal Comité 4 en 5 mei for organizing the wonderful events that keep the memories of those who fought for freedom alive.
