Other volunteers in the team will provide the translation in Dutch and add it to the website.
Are you interested, let us know.

When you are interested in doing other work to the website or want to be able to add your description yourself, after some training that is also possible.
Who we are looking for:
Someone who likes to write short informative pieces and likes to process accompanying photos of war-related sights. Think of the First and Second World War, but other wars are possible (whatever you prefer!).

Work:
You start with your own material (photos), what you find in reliable sources on the internet or in books / newspapers or with reliable information that others have sent you. You process these in existing or new locations, also called sights, on our website. That goes from very large like war museums or concentration camps to the smallest monuments or Stumbling stones!

At first you will be accompanied by more experienced editors, but if everything goes well you will soon be on your own feet. Of course there is always the possibility of getting help, via e-mail, Facebook or forums.

Please note: all activities are performed on a voluntary basis.
