dodenherdenking-begraafplaats-onderhoudWILLEMSTAD – The annual Second World War commemoration ceremony took place on Sunday May 4. Governor of Curacao, Lucille George-Wout and Prime Minister Ivar Asjes attended these ceremonies at the war victims’ monument at Waaigat and the military cemetery in Otrabanda. The traditional wreaths were laid in remembrance of those fallen ones during this war.

In preparation for these ceremonies, the militaries have helped the Military Heritage Foundation Curacao (SMEC) with the maintenance and painting of the cemetery. Forty military men have helped during two days with the maintenance. They painted and repaired the walls, the tombs and pruned the vegetation in the cemetery.
