The monument at Plac Polski and the annual commemorations in Driel

On September 21st 1946, a sober monument commemorating the events of two years earlier was unveiled. A new memorial to the Polish Parachute Brigade was erected 15 years later. Sculptor Jan Vlasblom designed a modern sculpture of 'youth holding on to freedom like a precious jewel'. The stone above it is like a parachute. On the pedestal ‘Surge Polonia’ (Poland will rise) was placed. The efforts of the Poles are commemorated every year here. 

The first version of the monument erected by the Driel people in honour of the Poles.
