Netherlands Carillon, George Washington Memorial ParkwayThe Netherlands Carillon was dedicated on May 5, 1960, on the 15th anniversary of the Netherlands' liberation from Nazi Germany. In gratitude for American aid received during and after World War II, the Dutch people rallied to support the memorial proposed by the Dutch government. This democratic cooperation reflected our two nations' solidarity behind democratic principles, especially as the Cold War grew in intensity.
