The history of the air battles over Rivierenland

Heavy air battles were fought in Rivierenland during the Second World War. Rivers like the Waal and the Rhine were important navigational aids for the planes on their way to bomb Germany. Everyone knows the stories of brave heroes who fought in the Nijmegen and Arnhem regions, but who died in Rivierenland and where were they buried? The new free app Heroes of the Sky answers these kinds of questions. 

The app was developed by the Regional Office for Tourism (RBT) Rivierenland in the context of the Gelderland Remembers program and was created thanks to financial support from the Province of Gelderland, the municipality of Culemborg, Neder-Betuwe, Zaltbommel and West Maas and Waal.  


Thanks to the app and with the help of the extraordinary stories and photos in it, everyone has the opportunity to learn more regarding the air battles which took place during the Second World War above Rivierenland. At the moment this can be done from the safety of your own home. As soon as it is responsible to travel again, next of kin and other interested parties are able to use this app to plan their own route and visit the locations where these stories took place. The app can be downloaded for free at the App Store and Google Play Store.
