Military Field of Honour Grebbeberg - Rhenen

N 51.9556346 / E 5.6004229

The Grebbeberg is the final resting place of approximately 400 Dutch soldiers who died in May in the battle for the Grebbeline. German soldiers who died here were also originally buried here, but after the war they were reburied at the cemetery for German soldiers killed in Ysselsteyn. Dutch soldiers who fell in the May Days and were buried elsewhere are now regularly reburied on this cemetery. The cemetery now consists of more than 850 graves.

There is a monument on the military cemetery which commemorates the dead of the Second World War every year on 4 May. J.C. Bloem wrote the following inscription on the monument:

FIVE DAYS - AND FREEDOM
PERISHED
FIVE YEARS - AND ONLY THEN
WAS IT REBORN
SO LABORIOUSLY TRIUMPHS
RIGHTEOUSNESS
TO THIS AWARENESS SHE
GRANTED
