Tonight at 20:00 hours is Dodenherdenking, the commemoration of those Dutchmen killed in the Second Word War, by the Axis powers. Wreaths will be laid at monuments in every town that lost their people.

Often there will be calls for racial and sectarian tolerance and peace.

In Amsterdam, there are ceremonies at 39 places. The wreaths will be brought indoors (Dutch) or be guarded. This has become necessary as "youths" will attack and destroy the wreaths.

Probably, when the mayor makes his call for peace and tolerance he will omit the fact that there are very well-defined groups in the city that habitually use violence against the outsiders.

And that these groups consist of immigrants or the offspring of immigrants.
