Your music touches me in ways I can't yet explain. Your site has inspired me to learn more about Normandy and where my father was during that time. He died about 6 years back and is greatly missed. It's hard to become the older generation in our family now! Thanks again for your efforts and passion to keep this history and its impact on our world in front of people.

WOW!!!!! Inderdaad heavy... Wat je met de muziek heb gedaan is fantastisch! Ik moet zeggen dat ik het af en toe moest afzetten... de originele documentaire is ook ongelovelijk... en zo moeilijk om te weten dat dit zo is gebeurt... Was waarschijnlijk moeilijk om te doen, want je moet waarschijnlijk elk beeld honderden keren zien!

Wouter Siteur via LinkedIN: Fred composes beautiful music.

Wat een afgrijselijke film. Laten we beide blij zijn dat we dit niet meegemaakt hebben. Het is onvoorstelbaar dat mensen, dit anderen mensen kunnen aandoen. Maar perfect in elkaar gezet. Die muziek is waanzinnig passend gemaakt door jou. Mijn complimenten.

Tonny Eyk via LinkedIN: Fred Vogels is als uitvoerend musicus, maar ook als componist een voortreffelijk vakman. Wie zijn website. bezoekt en zijn composities kan beluisteren krijgt de bevestiging. Hij heeft prachtige muziek gecomponeerd en zijn basis t.w.het Koninklijk Conservatorium in Den-Haag heeft hem gevormd tot een compleet musicus. Hij is muzikaal voor geen gat te vangen (ik weet het, want ik heb daar dezelfde opleiding gehad). Fred is een rasmuzikant...en ik moet eerlijk toegeven: ik ben zelfs een beetje jaloers op hem, want hij weet ook nog alles van ict, management en noem maar op. Tonny Eyk

Toen ik naar mijn werkkamer ging dacht ik: het eerste wat ik ga doen is Fred eindelijk laten weten dat ik zeer geboeid ben door zijn Killing Fields. En daar was je mail. Ik ben het stuk nog een keer gaan beluisteren, en werd er opnieuw door geraakt. De sfeer van verlatenheid die het begin oproept is, zo lijkt me, een uitdrukking van de stemming waarin je door 'het schuldige landschap' - tegelijk zo vredig als je het nu ziet en zo vol herinnering aan de vreselijke strijd die zich er heeft afgespeeld - bevangen raakt. De hobomelodie boven die zacht verglijdende strijkerslijnen geeft het mooi weer. De harmonische wrijvingen in het middendeel zijn eveneens bijzonder effectief. En dan het Da capo. Ik vind het een gaaf stuk.

To whom it may concern, My name is Clayton Ferguson, a 25 year old grandson of a Normandy Invasion veteran by the name of Curt Ferguson. My grandfather is still alive today and I visit with him regularly. He served in the 49th Engineer Combat Battalion of the 1106th Engineer Combat Group, landing on Utah Beach the morning of D-Day. I have searched the web over for any information, pics, stories, bio's just whatever I can find on the 49th E.C.B. and have not been able to find much of anything. I was just needing suggestions on what direction to turn my attention towards in finding the information I need to find. Beyond this request, his war's story is most excellent having had his brother jump in the night before with the 501st P.I.R. of the 101st airborne, both of them taking the war all the way to Germany and both of them coming home alive. I wonder how difficult it may be to record/submit his stories, photos, so that they are not forgotten in history. If you can be of any help at all, please, reply and tell me all about it. Thank you very much. Sincerely, Clayton Ferguson

To my liberators One day, as a child, I lost my name I was only a shadow, a number Drowned into a bottomless pit Out of which it seems that no One could ever emerge For month and month I struggled Calling you for help, so often, liberty With all my strength in this battle thrown At last I have seen the miracle come true Thank you, all of you who didn?t know For whom exactly you were fighting for It was to give back a name and life To a little girl whose name was Marie. MARIE LIPSTADT-PINHAS ? (Brussels ? Belgium) Liberated from concentration camp Turkheim (Dachau) on 27th april 1945, by 7th US ARMY, 10th armored division Mrs. Marie LIPSTADT-PINHAS
