New Heritage Minute tells story of life-long love, sparked in aftermath of occupation of the Netherlands
CBC News covers the launch of the new Heritage Minute on the liberation of the Netherlands.
It's the tale of a Canadian man who fought to liberate Europe, and a Dutch woman in Amsterdam who happily welcomed the Canadian soldiers. It's a symbol of the special 75-year relationship Canada and the Netherlands have shared since the liberation.
 
It's one of nearly 1,900 similar stories, according to Historica Canada, and this one has been told several times before. But now it has been captured in a Heritage Minute, further galvanizing its place in Canadian history. Read the full story here.
