Dutch War Grave Protestant Cemetery Driel

On the Protestant Cemetery behind the church are the following graves:

Riet de Leeuw, born 11 Augustus 1927, died on 23 september 1944.

By war violence
she was killed. Brave
villagers have buried
her at this spot.
Every time hiding in the church
because the shelling
was too intense.
Her family had to flee
fear and grief remain
in memory.
That her grave
may be a beacon to
prevent war.
