W5's special Remembrance Day report, The Liberators, details the heroic efforts of Canadian troops who brought freedom and dignity to the people of the Netherlands in the Second World War. It’s a story of liberation, told through the voices of Canadian veterans who fought there, and from Dutch people who honour the Canadians’ sacrifices. Peter Akman recalls a special time spent with Don White who returns to the Netherlands for the 75th Anniversary.
The Battle of the Scheldt was a brutal battle during the Second World War that saw Canadians fighting through Belgium and the Netherlands. Peter Akman visits a famous hotel in the Netherlands where the surrender of the Germans in Holland took place on May 5, 1945.
