Nobody deserves to be forgotten

Both 2019 and 2020 will be remarkable years. During these years, people from all over the world will commemorate and celebrate the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II. The end of the war in the Netherlands came closer when U.S. soldiers crossed the border near the town of Mesch on September 12, 1944, which became the first town to be liberated. However, it would take until May 5, 1945 before the country was fully liberated. And that liberation came at a heavy price for those who fought for it. That is why we will say thank you to our American liberators who have been buried in the Netherlands American Cemetery and Memorial in the town of Margraten. We pay tribute to them by decorating their graves and names on the Walls of the Missing with a photo in 2021. Join us in our quest for the missing faces and help to remember to those who sacrificed their all for our freedom.


Submit photos by April 15

With just over a month to go until all photos will be again on display during The Faces of Margraten tribute, the deadline for submitting new photos approaches rapidly. To make sure that a photo can be printed in time for the start of the tribute at the beginning of May, photos need to be submitted no later than April 15. Photos submitted after this date can, unfortunately, not be included in this year's tribute.

You can submit a photo to the tribute in a number of ways. First of all, you can use the digital form (click here) on the website of the tribute. Another possibility is to directly submit photos, as well as any other information, directly by email. Please use the address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for that purpose. Lastly, if you do not have a digital copy of the photo available, you can send a hard copy to the following address:

Stichting Verenigde Adoptanten Amerikaanse Oorlogsgraven
Loonsevaert 21
5171 LL Kaatsheuvel
The Netherlands

We will then scan the photo for you and make sure that it will become part of this year's tribute. However, please not that it might take some time for a photo to arrive in the Netherlands from the United States in this way. We recommend that you use this option only when you cannot submit the photo in any other way.
