L15: Het Amerikaanse vergissingsbombardement

Visit the website
To err is human, but it sometimes has inhumane consequences. On February 22, 1944, Nijmegen was hit by a true carpet of bombs. American pilots had become disoriented during bombing flights on Germany and mistook the city for Kleve, Germany. Many lost their lives in this mistaken bombardment. Men, women and many children.
