After the airborne landings of September 17, the inhabitants of Reek near Grave are awaiting the liberators. On Tuesday, September 19, 1944, an endless convoy of military vehicles finally appears at this intersection. All the residents of the entire area have gathered at the former hotel, De Kleine Elft. They cheer their liberators, who pass out chocolate and cigarettes. Fifteen-year-old Wim Boeijen is there too.
