Already in the spring of this year more than 400 primary and secondary school pupils participated in the “Arnhem van Slag” project. They spoke with eyewitnesses who were children during the Battle of Arnhem. All their impressions and knowledge were transformed into poetry and visual work.
The impressive and moving results of this project can be seen in the raadskapelof the Eusebiuskerk.
To ensure the success of Operation Market Garden, the Allied forces had to capture the bridge in Arnhem. But the light-armed airborne forces stood no chance against two SS Panzer Divisions that happened to be in the area. After desperate fighting and many casualties the Arnhem bridge proved to be ‘a bridge too far’.
