This is the home page of Joop van Zoelen (, living in Oosterbeek, the Netherlands. Oosterbeek is internationally best known from its role in the Battle of Arnhem in 1944 (Market Garden). Airborne Most events in the movie play " A Bridge Too Far " took place originally in Oosterbeek. Every year in September English and Polish veterans come to Oosterbeek to commemorate these events. In addition a 25 km march is held in the immediate environment of Oosterbeek, in which more than 30,000 people participate.


Next to my house is a small botanical garden, known as Heemtuin de Zomp, which is maintained by the local community. Recently an inventarisation has been made of the plants and birds in the Zomp. Moreover, a group of volunteers has made a plan to give the Zomp a more natural appearance. Detailed information on Oosterbeek and the Zomp is given in my Zomp home page.

The present page also contains a survey of my most popular bookmarks. Most of them are integrating files themselves, and contain world-wide information on specific issues listed per country. The ones that I use most frequently myself are listed in the Jovazo Netherlands Top-20.
