Remembrance Day 2020

Remembrance Day 2020

“On the morning of this Remembrance Day I laid a wreath of behalf of the Kingdom of The Netherlands at Menteng Pulo Cemetery to commemorate those who suffered and fell through atrocities of war both at home and abroad. Wreaths have also been laid on behalf of the Dutch Ministry of Defence, the Veteranen Platform, the DNC, the Dutch Business Network and the Oorlogsgravenstichting. The Honorary Consul in Surabaya, mw. Lily Jessica Tjokrosetio, laid a wreath at the Kembang Kuning Cemetery on behalf of The Kingdom of The Netherlands. Due to the current situation, the ceremonies had to be held without public. Instead we share with you this video of this mornings’ ceremony in Jakarta. I hope next year on this day, we are able to commemorate together as Dutch community in Indonesia, like we are used to. For now, stay healthy and take care” – Ambassador Lambert Grijns
