Remembrance Day has different meanings for many people– and it has a special significance for the Netherlands. Canada not only liberated the Netherlands from Nazi Germany, but the Dutch Royal Family lived in Canada during the World War II. ย I reached Anna Rijk, the Senior Officer of Public Diplomacy and Cultural Affairs at the Embassy in Ottawa and she spoke to me about what Remembrance Day means to the Dutch in Canada.
