Municipality to Honor Nazi Soldiers

The official representatives of the municipality of Bronckhorst will honor the fallen soldiers of Nazi Germany buried there on Dutch National Memorial Day, 4 May. This was decided by the municipality. Last year, this was forbidden by a judge. It was overturned by a Higher Court recently. (One may recall that the wartime German army, the Wehrmacht participated in mass executions of Jews and other civilians during the Second World War.)
