This year we celebrate that the city was liberated 75 years ago, a moment worthy of contemplation during GLOW too.
For this edition GLOW Eindhoven has sought to collaborate with Stichting Lichtjesroute. The Lichtjesroute is an important part of the city’s heritage and is the ultimate symbol of freedom. Originating from 1945, the year after liberation, to mark the return of light in the life following the dark days of occupation.
The Lichtjesroute starts each year on 18 September and evokes an infinite feeling of unity and solidarity. This unity has ensured that we have lived in freedom for 75 years, which is emphasised in the flag and doves of peace.
