Trees’ Diary about ‘Market Garden’


 Nationaal Comité 4 en 5 mei

Nationaal Comité 4 en 5 mei
Amsterdam, Netherlands

Trees Schretlen wrote on 18 September 1944: ‘The battle for Nijmegen has begun.’ The Americans and British have arrived to liberate the city. Trees kept a diary in the high school agenda she purchased for her junior year. Given all the schools had been closed, she no longer needed it for her classes. She drew a radio in the margin with the caption ‘Forward to the final victory.’
