May 4 is Dutch National Remembrance Day (Nationale Dodenherdenking). On this day, the Netherlands commemorates the fallen soldiers of World War II and those that died in other military conflicts and peacekeeping operations.
In Amsterdam the remembrance finds place at Dam Square, were the royal family lays down a symbolic wreath.

On May 5, the festivities take a more upbeat swing, as many free open air festivals are organised.
The so called Liberation Festival (Bevrijdingsfestival) intents to teach young people to appreciate the freedom and democratic society in which we live. Something we might take for granted sometimes.
Amsterdam organises 3 main stages for the event on May 5: on Dam Square, on Nesplein and Beursplein (all in the city centre)
