Beautiful railroad station -- before air war and bombardment
of Nijmegen on February 22, 1944
Nijmegen was accidently bombed on February 22, 1944 by the Allies. It turned out
they had mistaken Nijmegen for a German town. Because the "all clear" had just
been given, the citizens of Nijmegen were emerging from of their air-raided shelters.
About 750 civilians were killed, including children. Large parts of the city center
were destroyed. The railroad station was also seriously damaged.
Many of us were thrilled to see Model 15 TTY there.
The white wedding outfits were made out of a parachute.
Two American veterans (far right) from the audience were asked to
place a wreath to pay a tribute. One of the guys cried which
influenced the audience to break into tears.
