Foundation Forgotten Liberators

The goal of the Foundation is to give the Forgotten Liberators a place in history they deserve. Forgotten Liberators are British military units that have played a crucial role in the liberation of the East Twente region, but are not mentioned anywhere in historiography. As a result, appreciation has never reached them. Never have they been invited to festive commemorations. In 2020, 75 years after the liberation of the East Twente regions, the Foundation wants to set the record straight. It does this by initiating and supporting regional activities for the 75th anniversary year. To this end, the Foundation establishes contacts between Dutch military and local authorities and British units. In addition, the Foundation stimulates the involvement of the local population. The Foundation will raise funds, to reach its goals.
