Photographer's Note

First, second and this is my third and last one from May 14th 2007.

The sky above downtown Rotterdam was lit by 128 lights divided over a path of 11,5km which marked the area that was bombed. That day, 67 years ago, the Luftwaffe leveled some 2.6 square km's of the city's centre to make the Dutch surrender to the Nazi's... they did.

Rotterdam used these 67 years to rebuild the centre with modern architecture and is 2007 City of Architecture.
