All around the world we remember today the end of the "La grande guerre", the WWI. The centennial of the end of war was celebrated today and it was an emotional warning. Especially the French President Macron reminded us in Paris what can happen if history will repeat itself. Let‘s do not forget. 🌺 #liberationroute

Friday Mini Travelogue: Arnhem Oosterbeek War Cemetery. . . Are we doing this again? . This is the first, and so far the only war cemetery I’ve been to. Not on purpose but I didn’t have that much interest in them. A few years ago my brother and I happened to stop for a few hours in Arnhem, Netherlands, and while walking around we noticed some framed photos posted outside some buildings and homes. In these black and white photos I saw young men in uniform standing outside the same building I now stood in front of. We noticed more down the street and followed them. Eventually we made our way to the Airborne Cemetery. As I looked over the hundreds of stones I noticed the ages of those buried here, so many were barely in their twenties, many others didn’t even make it that far and the thirty year olds, well they were the elderly. Hundreds still are missing names, and the cemetery is set to expand as they are finding more remains. It’s a very moving place especially when you give it your time and attention. It brings the brutality of war to reality. Something I think is necessary for all of us to learn about and remember, especially in the resurgence of toxic nationalisms. Let’s honour their sacrifice by not repeating the mistakes of the past, or all too soon, it will be our names on stones. Of course that’s if we’re fortunate to be buried with one. . . #instagram#eyeem#gurushots#photocrowd#500px#remembrance#remember#rememberandlearn#toxicnationalism#war#nogloryinwar#arnhem#oosterbeek#arnhemoosterbeekwarcemetery#liberationroute#operationmarketgarden#paratroopers#horrorsofwar#100yearslater#remembranceday#remembranceday2018#travel#travellogue#blackandwhitephotography#bnwphotography#bnwphoto#cemeteryphotography

In the #Hürtgen Forest the #Allies were faced with difficult terrain, bad weather and German fortifications. This meant that progress came slow and at a high cost. For the Allied soldiers fighting in the Huertgen Forerst the first syllable of the name of the forest (“hurt”) became an omen of what was to be expected here. #europeremembers#liberationroute#germany

#MardassonMemorial in #Bastogne was inaugurated in 1950 to bear witness to #Belgium’s gratitude to the American soldiers who risked or lost their lives on Belgian soil. The monument takes the form of a star. Engraved in gold lettering, the story of the battle can be read on the walls of the open gallery. A walkway situated at the summit offers the visitor a panoramic view of the defensive positions held during the siege of the town. The Memorial is endowed with a crypt, decorated with a mosaic by the French artist Fernand Léger. #liberationroute#europeremembers#memorial

During the last six months of the war in Europe, together with the Dutch hydraulics engineer Lt. C. L. M. Lambrechtsen van Ritthem, major Edwin Hunt (Royal Engineers) advised the Chief Engineer Second Army, Brigadier "Ginger" Campbell, on the "opposed crossing of water obstacles", so that the longest floating Bailey bridge of the Second World War could be constructed at Gennep in the Netherlands. This bridge over the river Maas (Meuse) was 4,008 feet (1,222 m) long, and was opened on 19 February 1945. During a battlefield tour Major Edwin Hunt (middle on the photo) visited again the place where the Bailey bridge was located. #gennep#1944#holland1944#bailybridge#liberationroute#liberationofholland

#Ysselsteyn is a small village in the municipality of Venray in Limburg, Netherlands. It was established in 1921 and named after its designer, Hendrik Albert van IJsselsteyn, then Minister of Agriculture. Ysselsteyn's main object of interest is the Ysselsteyn German war cemetery at Timmermansweg 73, which covers about 28 hectares (69 acres) and contains the graves of 31,598 German war dead, most of whom who died in the Netherlands during #ww2.#liberationroute#europeremembers#cemetery

One of my favorite new books. If you like maps, Peter Chasseaud's 'Mapping the First World War' and 'Mapping the Second World War' are definitely worth getting. The research of the role in topographic maps during both wars is in its infancy. I think I can add something new to the existing research, so I hope to write my thesis about this subject.

Last summer I met David Marshall of M Company, 334th Infantry Regiment, 84th Infantry Division. The days being with him visiting the former battlefields in The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany were one of the best day as it was the first time I really was able to spend time with a World War Two veteran. Besides, David felt like a grandpa to me and I had a hard time saying goodbye to him. A week ago in Normandy I was overwhelmed when David's guardian had a surprise for me. His guardian was also the guardian for Frank Agoglia, which is why I got to see him again. All of a sudden during the crew's lunch the documentary director made an announcement. He started talking about me and that David had a present for me. Within one second of seeing the shape of the bag I knew what was in there: A letter and a US M1 helmet. David Marshall gave his helmet, which he wore in in combat during the Second World War, to me! You could say I was stunned and speechless. In my head I was like: OH MY GOD!! I made David a promise last summer: to annualy visit the grave of his best friend Smitty who was killed on November 19th 1944 in Germany. Smitty is burried at the Netherlands American Cemetery in Margraten. And, with this helmet I will keep spreading David's story for the rest of my life.

Ray W. Chapple was the commander of Battery B, 333rd Artillery Battalion. Interestingly, the 333rd was a complete African American unit led by white officers. The unit itself is infamously known for the massacre of eleven of men Battery C near the town of Wereth, Belgium, on December 16th during of the Battle of the Bulge. They were named the 'Wereth 11'. The 333rd was assigned to 106th Infantry Division and remained in positions near Schonberg, Belgium when the German offensive broke out. On the 17th of December, Battery C got outflanked and cut off from the rest. Batteries A and B, also overrun, managed to fall back with a couple of men to the Belgian town of Bastogne where took up defensive positions with the men of the 696th Field Artillery Battalion. This was another African American Artillery Battalion positioned alongside the 101st Airborne Division. On December 24th, the German Luftwaffe bombed the town of Bastogne and as a result Ray W.

One of the main objectives of Allied forces-led Operation Market Garden in 1944
One of the main objectives of Allied forces-led Operation Market Garden in 1944 was to capture the two bridges across the Waal river in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. This task proved to be difficult. In a desperate effort to maintain the momentum, U.S. paratroopers crossed the Waal in canvas boats. Attacking from both sides, they managed to capture the bridges intact. Forty years later the ‘Waal Memorial’ was erected to honour the soldiers who fell during the Waal crossing. In 2013 a third bridge over the Waal was inaugurated by the last surviving veterans of the assault, and Mrs. Barbara Gavin, the eldest daughter of General James Gavin, the ‘liberator’ of Nijmegen. The new bridge is named ‘the Crossing’ (De Oversteek) to commemorate the heroic crossing that liberated Nijmegen in 1944. #vsco#vscocam#europeremembers#liberationroute#nijmegen#deoversteek

My @gadventures Baltics tour has ended, but I still have a lot more to share! The tour was a great success and one of the better G tours I’ve been on (and I’ve been on 14 tours!) I was able to visit 3 new countries on the tour, and even used the opportunity to visit two other countries on either end of the trip (Belarus and Russia). I learned a lot about the Baltic states, and the differences between them (and the difference are quite large). I’ll be posting more photos as I process them, and as always follow along on my Instagram Stories, where I’m much more active. If you are interested in taking the same exact trip I did through the Baltics, click on the URL in my bio! Today I’m leaving Helsinki and will be heading to London where I’ll be starting a trip through Western Europe following the Liberation Route which the Allies took in WWII. I’ll be starting in London and working my way to Berlin via France, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
