Welcome to the website of the War Graves Foundation Nederweert War Cemetery.

It is with sadness that we announce the death of Wiel Mackus.

Our striking, versatile and ever-ready man from the very beginning.

We are greatly indebted to him.

He will remain in our thoughts as an honorary member of our foundation.

In accordance with his wishes, we are surprised and grateful to offer you the opportunity to support our foundation with your donation.

This is a tribute to 363 people who had the courage to fight for the freedom and rights of their fellow human beings. The freedom and rights that our society today sometimes treats casually. It is now up to our generation to set an example by doing the right thing, and show respect by honoring those who could never enjoy freedom.

They died lonely far from home and often disappeared in anonymous graves. Through this adoption project we try to give them a face and their stories are told again.
