Committee plans to release folder on Ede’s Fallen

Tags: Excerpts from the Windmill

EDE – A local committee is attempting to trace the stories behind the names of Ede’s Fallen members of the wartime resistance movement. A smaller structure next to the Mausoleum lists the names of those who did not return from the former Dutch East Indies. The committee wants to create a folder with that information for release by May 2010, in the time for 65th anniversary of the Liberation of 1945. The stories of many of the Fallen members of the resistance is largely known, but it is a different matter when it comes to the veterans of the Indië campaigns. Another problem for the committee is the lack of information on those from the villages belonging to the far flung municipality of Ede. The Mausoleum, which dates from 1945, has been declared a municipal heritage structure.
