The Rusthof cemetery (Dutch: begraafplaats Rusthof is located in Oud-Leusden, Leusden municipality, Utrecht Province, Netherlands. It is the largest cemetery that services Amersfoort, which is 4 km south of. Therefore it is often called Amersfoort General Cemetery or Amersfoort (Old Leusden) Cemetery or other variants.

It is a partly civilian partly military cemetery. Buried there are the victims of World War II, including 238 soldiers and pilots killed in action from the British Commonwealth, Poland, Belgium and France, also World War II military victims from Yugoslavia, Greece, Hungary, Romania, Portugal, Czechoslovakia and Italy (World War I and II), as well as 865 soldiers from the Soviet Union,
A number of Soviet victims came from the nearby Kamp Amersfoort. The Soviet soldiers were eventually reburied in 1947/1948 from some other places in what is called “the Russian Honor Field” or “the Soviet Field of Glory”

In Flanders fields the poppies blow…   Leave a comment

“In Flanders Fields” is a war poem in the form of a rondeau, written during the First World War by Canadian physician and Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae.t is one of the most popular and most quoted poems from the war. As a result of its immediate popularity, parts of the poem were used in propaganda efforts and appeals to recruit soldiers and raise money selling war bonds. Its references to the red poppies that grew over the graves of fallen soldiers resulted in the remembrance poppy becoming one of the world’s most recognized memorial symbols for soldiers who have died in conflict. The poem and poppy are prominent Remembrance Day symbols throughout the Commonwealth of Nations, particularly in Canada, where “In Flanders Fields” is one of the nation’s best known literary works.
