    ‘The Information Centre: The Poles of Driel. Bound by Friendship and Gratitude’ provides insights into the battle fought by the 1st Independent Polish Parachute Brigade in the village of Driel during Operation Market Garden.

    The Centre is also focused on the way the Brigade came into being, the difficult subject of an unjust way  those Poles were treated after the failure of Operation Market Garden and the friendship that subsequently developed between the people of Driel and the Polish parachutists.


    The Ambassador of the Republic of Poland Dr. Jan Borkowski opened the Centre on September 18, 2014.




    The Information Centre is at the back of the Roman Catholic Church in Driel and is open daily to visitors from 9.00hrs to 17.00hrs. Kerkstraat 27, 6665 CE Driel. Entrance is free.

    There is a bus stop directly in front of the church and there is sufficient parking space for cars and buses.
