To guarantee an unforgettable Commemoration, the volunteers of the 15 August 1945 Commemoration Foundation are indispensable!

The 15 August Commemoration Foundation is seeking volunteer hosts/hostesses to help attendees find their places and where necessary to accompany them during the commemoration of the capitulation of Japan, which marked the end of the Second World War in the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The commemoration takes place annually on 15 August at the Indies Monument in The Hague.


What we ask of a volunteer: availability on 15 August and a maximum of two half days’  preparation. We welcome responses from the younger generation in particular. Please send an e-mail to: [email protected]

The Commemoration Foundation works with a large number of volunteers, including students from the VCL and sea cadets from the Rotterdam Sea Cadet Corps.
