In connection with the upcoming celebration of our freedom on May 5, I once browsed through old magazines from my grandfather.


In the years before the war there were clearly warnings of the danger that Europe was close to an abyss ….


A few days before the war people were hopeful to have “a sunny vacation”.


This is the first edition of “Ons Vrije Nederland” after the liberation  , 


But did we, as the descendants learn anything?
Is there less profit and greed ….. , now that we live in peace?

Are we close to the next abyss ?
