Indies bell

Indies bell

The bronze bell was placed behind the Indies Monument in 1995 and was sounded for the first time in the presence of Queen Beatrix. The bell reminds visitors to the Indies Monument that they are standing on a sacred spot.

 

The funds for the bell were raised because it was felt that this monument should also have a sound, a voice. A voice which not only commemorates the war victims of the past, but also constantly calls on and encourages everyone to strive for peace, both now and in the future.
