Commemoration for refugees who died on their way to Europe
We invite you for the commemoration for refugees who died on their way to Europe. Join us on Sunday, November 5th at the Hofvijver The Hague.
We think it is important for The Netherlands to commemorate these people. Our hope is that a memorial is organized in many more cities. Would you like to commemorate next year or do you know people who can do this? Come to the commemoration on Sunday, November 5th.
Thousands of people have died nameless and in silence while seeking protection and safety in Europe. In 2014 and 2015 more than 3.000 people died each year, in 2016 the number of deaths reached to 5.000 and this year 2856 people passed away at European borders (source: missing migrants IOM). On Sunday, 5th of November we commemorate them with as many people as possible in The Hague.
