|The instrument of surrender signed at Reims on 7 May 1945|
5 May 2013.
I live in peace.
I live in freedom.
Freedom of speach. Freedom of religion. Freedom TO BE WHO YOU ARE.
I am free to love who I love, to marry who I love.
I thank all our liberators for all they did to make Europe, the Netherlands free country again.
On May 4 we remember the dead, at the Nationale Dodenherdenking commemorating all civilians and members of the armed forces of the Kingdom of the Netherlands who have died in wars or peacekeeping missions since the outbreak of World War II. The last part of the Netherlands was liberated May 5, 1945.
