army dogs

Today we remember all the people who died in the second world-war in Holland.

I found some pictures from dogs who had to work in the army during the war.

Thanks for posting this, Hans! The dogs of war are often overlooked and forgotten.

I think that a lot of people don't know about what happened in Holland during WWII. I certainly didn't! That is until I stumbled on a very large memorial wall in a small, enclosed cemetery in Eindhoven listing all the people - many entire families - who died over the course of a few days in September 1944. As soon as I could, I rented A Bridge Too Far to get the gist of what happened. The movie is brilliant description of Operation Market Garden and the tragic folly of war.

For those of you not in Holland who may not be familiar with its WWII history, here's an interesting, lengthy post I just found from a blog written by four Dutch women Holland in World War 2.

Thanks again, Hans.

What a noble position for them to have had. Thanks for the link Suzanne. I did not know that much about Holland in WWII.
