Arnhem in the second World War:
Born as a citizen of the city of Arnhem, I am interested in my home town Arnhem, particularly from the 1850s to the 1950s.
I have a reasonable collection (± 150) books, publications and leaflets ect. about Arnhem and some videos.
A special interest is there for the 2nd World War years 1940-1945.

By chance I discovered the YouTube channel of Dirk Hilberding, who has a huge collection of videos on his channel about the 2nd World War, including a number of Dutch cities.

In his collection are four videos about Arnhem and the Battle of Arnhem (the famous movie: a Bridge Too Far) and its consequences.
The commentair in these videos is in Dutch, but for viewers who can not understand the Dutch language, these videos are still very interesting!
It shows an image of the war years in Arnhem and finally the enormous havoc in the city (see video 2), after the war.
