Dutch veterans tell their stories online
The Dutch Veterans Institute has published the stories of hundreds of old soldiers sent on Dutch military missions to countries like Indonesia, former Yugoslavia, Lebanon and Cambodia since May 1940.
Researcher Stef Scagliola says the Veterans Institute recorded thousands of interviews over a four-year period, a selection of which were published on Thursday.
The institute says it’s important to preserve the memories of veterans.
The researchers had no problems finding veterans who were willing to contribute to the project.
