Cemetery
Place of Remembrance
 
The Liberation Concert Margraten and the annual celebration of Memorial Day are intended to show our gratitude and to honor those who fought for our freedom, to keep their memory alive for future generations, and to ensure that increasing numbers of the public continue to visit the American Cemetery. Over 150,000 visitors already find their way to this unique site each year: Americans, Dutch, Belgians, Germans, and many other nationalities. All these people experience the special atmosphere of this cemetery and will always remember the story behind it.
 
The various activities organized at the cemetery site, such as the Memorial Day celebrations, the Liberation Concert Margraten and the Margraten Memorial Center, aim to ensure that visitor numbers to the cemetery continue to grow and that more and more people learn and remember the story behind it.
