Amsterdam and the Canadians

As I continue to work on my WWII book, I had to know who liberated Amsterdam.  It was the Canadians.  I spent a lot of time on websites concerning the subject.  The Anne Frank website is if filled with information.

It touched my heart to see how the Dutch remember their liberators. In school, the children are taught about the men who fought to free the city.  And they carefully tend the cemetery where all those men who never made it back home lie.
