Ceremony of commemoration in Bezuidenhout

On 3rd March 1945, the Bezuidenhout in the Netherlands was mistakenly bombed. The British bomber crews had intended to bomb the Forest of the Hague district where the Germans had installed V-2 launching facilities that had been used to attack English cities. However, the pilots were issued with the wrong coordinates, combined with fog and clouds which obscured their vision, the bombs were instead dropped on the Bezuidenhout neighbourhood. More than 520 people were killed, thousands became homeless. Lots of buildings were left in ruins.

The ceremony will be held on 3 March 2020 near the commemorative statue of Juliana van Stolberg in Hague.
