Richard van Kessel

Since his early childhood Richard van Kessel is interested in the Second World War and mainly in the military struggle in the Dutch province of Limburg. Over the years his interest changed into a big passion and since 2003 it’s his goal to keep the memory to the Second World War alive.

To achieve that goal he has setup some projects. A few of these projects are; the establishment of a monument dedicated to the Dutch soldiers and their battle against Nazi Germany on May 10th 1940 in Roermond, the website www.Roermond1939-1945.nl and the bicycle tour “ Between Maas and Roer’44-‘45”. In this bicycle tour the participant follows the footsteps of the liberators  of the area between Maas(bracht) and Roer(mond) in the province of Limburg. Since the summer of 2016 it’s also possible to participate the bicycle tour as a Battlefield Tour with Richard as a guide.
