On Thursday, an organisation called the Brabant Pacte des Cygnes society will place more than 600 roses in the military cemetery in Mierlo. A rose will be laid on every grave.

This group is committed to the province of Brabant’s cultural heritage. They are placing the roses to honour the region’s WWII liberators. Last week, the cemetery was covered with graffiti. A 36-year-old man has been arrested for this.

“The roses will be laid to obliterate the disrespectful and hateful words written”, the group says. The laying of the roses will start at 11:00.
