May 2015 —- Memorial Concert Grebbeberg Battle 1940

On 29th May 2015, during the Grebbeberg Memorial Concert (near the City of Arnhem / movie “A Bridge Too Far”), Amira performed together with the Symphonic Brass Orchestra “Ons Genoegen”.

The Grebbeberg Memorial Concert was organized to honor those who defended our freedom during World War II, and paid with their lives for us to be able to live in freedom today. Let’s never forget …

Amira sang Händel’s Ombra Mai Fu and Puccini’s Nessun Dorma. It was a rainy evening, but still over 1,000 people were present to honor those who lost their lives in the Grebbeberg Battle, which took place during the German Invasion of The Netherlands at the outbreak of the Second World War, between the 11th and 13th of May 1940.

At the start of the Grebbeberg Memorial Concert, the children from elementary school “De Springplank” in Rhenen also showed a Very Special Videoclip they made, to bring a tribute to all those families, in and around Rhenen, who suffered deeply during and after the Grebbeberg Battle of May 1940. Let’s never forget …
