The war victims buried at the War Cemetery were for a long time kind of forgotten. The foundation Soviet War Cemetery would like to keep the memory about them alive, to find their relatives and organize their visit to the grave. That is why the Foundation Soviet War Cemetery offers the graves for adoption. Your yearly contribution of 50 euros per soldier will help us to help the relatives. Each participant in grave adoption will receive a certificate with the name of the soldier and his grave number. He will also receive at least four times per year a newsletter. Yearly, we will lay flowers at the graves of adopted soldiers* and we will light a candle on Christmas Eve.
Register? Fill in the form below and transfer 50 euros per grave to bank account NL 88 RABO 0127 654 739 to the name of the Stichting Russisch Ereveld in Amersfoort. After receiving your payment, the certificate will be sent to you.
The Dutch tax authorities have identified the Foundation the Soviet War Cemetery as an ANBI (public welfare institution). Your gift may be tax deductible.
*You can for sure bring flowers to the grave. That is possible but not necessary. Adopters are not expected to carry out maintenance on the grave. The maintenance of the Soviet War Cemetery is performed by the War Graves Foundation. See also: Who does what?
