Little is known about the identity of these soldiers. In some cases we have established that they are British or American, but that is all we know. A number of photos depict soldiers and Dutch civilians, probably citizens of Nijmegen. Some soldiers have been photographed several times. In total the collection contains more than 650 soldiers, most of them British.
All pictures are categorised according to names, nationalities, army divisions or other specifications. If you recognise a person, you could help us in our search for more details. With your help we can identify these soldiers.
It will be very difficult to describe every photo in detail. However, each contribution enriches the digital memory of our liberators. A name can mean a lot to somebody who is searching the internet for information on the Allied Forces and on the Second World War. Thanks to you someone may obtain a picture (maybe the last one ever taken) of a family member which was taken in Nijmegen over sixty years ago.
