Ede war memories

Vensters op het verleden (‘Windows on the past’) by designer Karin Colen was chosen as the winning design for a landmark on Ginkel Heath. The landmark was unveiled a few days before the 2019 Airborne Landings and Commemoration of the 75th anniversary of Operation Market Garden.

The work is a steel construction that stands six metres tall. The windows depict what happened on Ginkel Heath in 1944. The parachutist in the centre panel is life-sized. In the background, manpower and equipment are being dropped from the sky.

Information about Operation Market Garden in Dutch and English is provided on the base of the landmark. The landmark is included in hiking and cycling routes currently under development. These routes will travel to historic locations with unique war stories in Ede.
