White Ribbon Mile 2021

White Ribbon Mile 2021

One of the activities I did was walking The White Ribbon Mile.

It’s a short symbolic walk through the floodplains of the Oude Kerk in Oosterbeek to the memorial monument on the River Rhine. The real route was from  Hotel Hartenstein through the woods of Oosterbeek to the floodplains near the Rhine. It was than marked with a white ribbon to see where they should walk in the dark.  A white ribbon is now only visible in the floodplains during the commemoration period in September.

The story is told on signs along the route. I put the last sign here,  because it indicates that war is certainly not over.
