Photo Report Race to the Bridge 2021

When the first Airbornes landed on 17 September 1944 in the Renkum/Wolfheze area, it was of the utmost importance to reach their target as quickly as possible: the road bridge in Arnhem. Every year on the Saturday afternoon during the memorial weekend, this Race to the Bridge is reenacted.

The first photos were taken at the Benedendorpsweg in Oosterbeek. The second part of the series was made in front of the Airborne Museum.
