We are pleased that the well-known writer Pieter Waterdrinker wants to be our guest during our annual adopters’ day. On Sunday 18 April as from 12.00 hours he will talk about how important the Second World War is to the Russians and how great the suffering this war has caused.

Since 1996 Waterdrinker lives alternately in Saint Petersburg, Moscow and the Netherlands. He wrote a score of beautiful novels that often play in Russia. In 2018 we was a guest in the renowned Dutch talk show Zomergasten. He also worked for years in the former Soviet Union as a correspondent for Dutch media.

Waterdrinker grew up in Zandvoort, where he heard the stories of the Georgians. His Russians family-in-law was also badly hurt by the war.

During the adopters’ day we catch up on the latest developments concerning the Soviet Military Cemetery Foundation and the forthcoming commemorations in May.
