About this book

Harrowing and redeeming, this is the history of a unique 'adoption' system. For generations, local families, grateful for the sacrifice of their liberators from Nazi occupation, have cared for not only the graves, but the memories, of over 10,000 US soldiers in the cemetery of Margraten in the Netherlands.

Reviews

'...well-researched and draws on an extensive range of archival collections on both sides of the Atlantic. 'The Margarten Boys' is insightful in tracing the complex ways individuals, societies, and governments seek to commemorate and shape the memory of the past.' - G. Kurt Piehler, Director of the Institute on World War II and the Human Experience, Florida State University, USA
