History Happy Hour Episode 142 – The Faces of Margraten
Guests: Sebastiaan Vonk, Jori Videc, Ari-Jan Van Hees
Sunday, April 23, 2023
This Week on History Happy Hour: Three years ago Chris and Rick welcomed Dutch historian (and our friend) Sebastiaan Vonk to HHH to talk about a project of remembrance undertaken at the American Netherlands Cemetery in Margraten. Now that project has led to a remarkable book, Faces of Margraten, just published in English.
Sebastiaan and his co-authors, Jori Videc, and Ari-Jan Van Hees, will join us to talk about the book, and their efforts to make sure that thousands of individual GIs who fought in WWII are not forgotten.
