The flame was transferred from the Airborne Museum in Oosterbeek accompanied by ten primary school student and done under the safe supervision of the fire brigade. Hengelo’s mixed and parish choirs sung beautiful peace songs.
Prominent speeches were made by Fred Hofman, board member WPF Bronckhorst, Alderman Peppelman and Monique Schieman.
Children read out their own poignant and touching poems.
Many people in attendance also wrote a peace wish on the wooden cards and hung them in the tree by the monument.
