This is the home page of Joop van Zoelen (firstname.lastname@example.org), living in Oosterbeek, the Netherlands. Oosterbeek is internationally best known from its role in the Battle of Arnhem in 1944 (Market Garden).
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.
