In 2014 the Melodies from the Heart created a plan to offer these people a video monument. They could all participate in this moument just by sending us there video of a burning candle and the name of there lost child. On our website and facebookpage we received a lot of videos.
When creating the video monument we also composed a nice song which is sung by Saskia Heemskerk.
