Perspectives on freedom
The Netherlands has its own tradition for commemorating WWII and celebrating the Liberation. Two days are set apart: one for observances and one for festivities. At the evening of the 4th of may, the Dutch remember the Dutch victims of WWII and victims of other wars and peace keeping operations since. On the 5th of may, they celebrate freedom. Not just by looking back, but also looking forwards.
Every year, the selected cartoons are used in various publications, online and offline, to promote Liberation Day (May 5th), and to remind the Dutch just how special and important the freedom is that they have enjoyed since the end of the Second World War in 1945.
