War Memorial Etten-Leur

This war memorial in Etten-Leur commemorates all war casualties from World War II until now, there are also two names of victims of the war in the Dutch East Indies. The memorial was designed by Niko de Wit from Tilburg. On the ground lies a plaque with the following Dutch text (translated to English):

In Etten-Leur, we regret the death
of a large population
during the Second World War
killed by war acts.

We call their names
and thus confirm their existence
in the book you find in the wedding chapel

Etten-Leur, May 2005
