Give the Children Freedom is a preview for the documentary of Netherlands Liberation and the 12th Field Regiment. Through the eyes of those that lived it, history comes alive through interviews, WW2 archival footage, still photographs and authentic material. It is a personal story about remarkable men and women and their memories of their time.


The poem is read by young student, Julian, for the 70th commemorations of the Liberation of the Netherlands in ‘s-Heerenberg. This was the first town liberated on April 1st, 1945 in Operation Plunder and the Battle of the Rhine.
