The Faces of Margraten Seeking Photos of Jewish Soldiers Buried at Netherlands American Cemetery

The Faces of Margraten and Fields of Honor Database are seeking photographs of Jewish soldiers buried at the Netherlands American Cemetery in Margraten. This project was created by the Dutch non-profit organization Stichting Verenigde Adoptanten Amerikaanse Oorlogsgraven as an effort to honor the Americans who served in World War II and particularly the 10,023 buried at Margraten. Thousands of photographs have been collected and they are seeking more.  The tribute includes 179 Jewish American soldiers buried in the cemetery.

The photos will be placed next to the headstones from May 2-6, when the Netherlands observe the 73rd anniversary of their liberation. They’ll also be stored for future generations in the Fields of Honor Database. Visit Fields of Honor to view the thousands of photographs already included.

Submit a photo to the Faces of Margraten. Pictures of the following Jewish soldiers are still needed:
