February 22nd 1944, bombing of Nijmegen by The Allies
American bombers destroyed the center of Nijmegen, Enschede, Arnhem, and Deventer, also
near the border, mistaking them for German territory on their return from an unsuccessful mission to
destroy Nazi industrial targets. About 800 people died in Nijmegen - as many as in the
Nazi destruction of Rotterdam. Thousands lay wounded.
On what many Dutch people consider to be the worst day of the Second World War.
The attack struck Nijmegen - a Batavian-Roman city about 4 kilometers inside the Netherlands
across the border with Germany - from a clear blue sky at 1:30 in the afternoon, obliterating
most of the inner city and eliminating its train station.
