Airborne Commemoration Oosterbeek The Needle

The start of Operation Market Garden on the 17th of September 1944 in the Ede/Oosterbeek/Arnhem region will be commemorated through a small scale Airborne ceremony and wreath laying, organised by the municipality of Renkum.

The Airborne ceremony will be the first commemoration in the framework of all the Battle of Arnhem related ceremonial events.

The Airborne monument at Oosterbeek consists of a column crowned with a group of male figures. The man depicting ‘Freedom’ is surrounded by soldiers.

Opposite The Needle, which was designed by Jac. Maris and H. Wesselink, you will find the Airborne Museum ‘Hartenstein’.
