Original size 2550 × 3509 px

Between September 14 and 17, 1944, the then municipality of Valkenburg-Houthem was liberated from National Socialism. We remember this with this book, for which you can subscribe now.

Valkenburg, Spring 2024
Valkenburg 2024, 80 years liberated! The stories not yet told!

80 stories and pictures about the occupation, the liberation and the aftermath of World War II. In ten chapters the stories of Valkenburgers who experienced the Second World War as children or heard them from their parents, friends and acquaintances. Among them are poignant stories, stories of fear, threat and death.
Experiences that were stored in the brain and have now surfaced, because they were often deep. Perhaps it is good that they are told now, preserved and can be passed on to future generations. To show that wars are inhumane and should no longer take place anywhere.

That is why this book!
