The Cold War, Modernism and the Netherlands Carillon in Arlington.

The Netherlands Carillon stands out in the American memorial landscape. Situated between Arlington National Cemetery and the Marine Corps War Memorial, the mondernist bell tower is at odds with its surroundings, much in the same wat that its prominent place is at odds with its absence in American memory.

Given to the United States in the 1950s by the Dutch government for America's role in the Dutch liberation during World War II and for the Marshall Plan aid, the carillon owes its conspicuous placement to the Cold War.

Diederik Oostdijk traces the history of this monument.
