MH370 and MH17 will NEVER be forgotten

AMSTERDAM: On a vast expanse of green not far from the Amsterdam Schiphol international airport stands 298 trees – one for each life lost tragically in a crime against humanity almost six years ago.

Each tree represents one person on board ill-fated Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 which took off from the Schiphol airport and was shot down over eastern Ukraine on July 17, 2014.

The vast majority – 193 out of the total 298 – of those who perished in the downing of the aircraft were Dutch. The rest included Malaysians, Australians, Britons, and 13 other nationalities.

With the case returning to the spotlight with the start of the trial tomorrow, the number of visitors to this MH17 memorial park has expectedly increased.
