The Faces of Margraten 2018 at Netherlands American Cemetery

May 2, 2018, at 9:00am CEST to May 6, 2018, at 5:00pm CEST

Netherlands American Cemetery will host the Faces of Margraten from May 2-6, 2018. The Stichting Verenigde Adoptanten Amerikaanse Oorlogsgraven (Foundation United Adopters American War Graves) has worked to create a unique tribute to the men and women buried or memorialized at the cemetery. They have been collecting photos since 2014 in order to give a face to the names on the marble headstones and the Walls of the Missing.

During the Faces of Margraten, the photos will be placed directly next to the headstone or wall. Visitors will be able to walk through the cemetery and see the faces of the men and women that gave their lives in the fight to liberate the Netherlands.

To date the group has collected more than 5,000 photos. Attendance is free and open to the public.
