More today from where I left off yesterday, with images of medical care during the Second World War.
As the end came closer, German resolve broke.
Organizations like the Red Cross worked in various ways with the military, out in harm's way.
The POW story for Canadians is much the same as it was for other Allied forces. Some of them ended up in the most infamous prisoner of war camp: Stalag III, site of what would become known as The Great Escape.
Images of the end of the war- Canadian paratroopers deep in Germany.
Many Canadian soldiers ended the war by liberating the Netherlands. This has resulted in an everlasting bond of friendship between the two countries. As my family comes from the Netherlands, you can imagine this area is particularly moving to me.
And to this day, Canadian veterans are loved by the Dutch.
