George Maduro was a war hero while defending The Hague against the Germans in 1940. He was captured several times. Each time he was freed, he joined the Dutch resistance until his death at 28 in the Dachau concentration camp. His parents started Madurodam in 1952 and named the miniature park in his honor. Pictured here is a model of Dom Tower. The actual Gothic bell tower in Utrecht province stands an impressive 368 feet, the tallest in Holland.
