Operation Market Garden 2019
75 year commemoration
14 – 22 september 2019
In 2019 it is 75 years ago that the Allied armies started liberating the Netherlands. This operation, planned by Bernard Montgomery, was called Operation Market Garden. In a world where tensions can increase rapidly, freedom is precious. This is made very clear time after time.
In 1994 Operation Market Garden was commemorated on a large scale for the first time with a tour over the same route as in 1944. In 2012 Platform Market Garden foundation got the idea to organize this tour one more time in 2014.
From this platform, Operation Market Garden 2014 foundation ( OMG2014 ) was founded. On the 23rd of February 2017 the decision was made to rename the foundation to Operation Market Garden, without the year notification to make it universal.
Because of the success in OMG2014, we were asked to do this once more for the 75th anniversary of Operation Market Garden. This is how OMG2019 was born!
