 Opgericht in 1997 beijvert Stichting ‘Broken Wings ’40-45’ zich ervoor om hen, die in de Tweede Wereldoorlog hun leven gaven voor onze vrijheid, te eren en komende generaties te blijven herinneren aan de offers die zij brachten. Dit gebeurt o.a.door het organiseren van herdenkingen en het geven van gastlessen op scholen.
Broken Wings  geeft vrede een gezicht

 

Wij kunnen dit alleen doen met uw hulp!!. Wij hebben nog vele vacatures, vooral voor het scholenproject hebben we dringend een of meer extra krachten nodig, zie verder de vacaturepagina. Ook uw financiele hulp is echt dringend nodig om alles draaiend te houden, wordt donateur of stort een bijdrage op NL02RABO0317 5617 23.

    Hello friends at Brokenwings. Thank you for the memorial to my uncles Lancaster bomber shot down over Emst in September 1942. He was flight sergeant R E Williams on KMS- w4169. I hope to be able to visit it later this year. Keep up the good work.

      Thanks for your kind reaction.I have passed your message to Gerrit Kamphuis. He has done a lot of research and is chairman of the Broken Wings research team. In his book-Gevallen Helden-(fallen Heroes) are all the crashes in the area Epe/Vaassen, incusive the crash in Emst of the Lancaster KM-S of 44 Squadron. In the book are also pictures of some of the crewmembers;Holland , Goodyear and Huntley. Your uncle was the navigator,21 yaers of age at the moment of the crash.
      Gerrit will contact you soon.
      The people of Broken Wings will do their utmost to keep the memory living, we thank our freedom to their courage and we will pass our message to our children and grandchildren at home and in the schools

      This Lancaster crashed near the small village Emst. Broken Wings has erected a small monument , it is situated near the entrance of camping ’t Hinkel, close to the crashsite.
      The camping belongs to the farm there and the people there are very well informed about what happened there in WO2, there is a small exhibition in one of the buildings there.
      One of our members wrote a book in which all crashes in the community of Epe/Vaassen are described in detail (in Dutch language). His name is Gerrit Kamphuis and his mailadress is g.kamphuis3@chello.nl.
      Specially for the relatives of crewmembers small booklets in english can be obtained from him. 6 crewmembers are buried in Epe.
      Broken Wings takes care their names are not forgotten,we organize special lessons for schoolclasses and each year celebrate Remembrance Day.
      I hope this information will help you,

      Regards J.Isings
