@calculsoberic Every year there's an national two minutes of silence for the fallen at 20:00 :ablobwink:

@calculsoberic Tomorrow the 5th of May is Liberation Day (Bevrijdingsdag) for us πŸŽ‰

@calculsoberic "Liberation Day is a public holiday in the Netherlands celebrated each year on 5 May to mark the end of the occupation by Nazi Germany during World War II. It follows the Remembrance of the Dead on 4 May."

@stux The closest thing us Serbs have got is National Holocaust, World War II Genocide and other Fascist Crimes Victims Remembrance Day
