About

STIWOT

STIWOT is short for "STichting Informatie WereldOorlog Twee" or Foundation for Information on World War 2. It was founded in 2002 from the website Go2War2.nl, established in 1999 by Frank van der Drift.

Aim

STIWOT aims to further knowledge of the second World War in military, political, economical, cultural and and social areas. By informing people about this period in our history, we strive to keep memories alive. STIWOT advocates the free distribution of knowledge. That is why most of the information provided by us is free for all to consult.

Target

STIWOT has a vast target group. Anyone looking for information on World War Two, whether for a hobby, education, profession or private research, can turn to STIWOT for information.

Internet

STIWOT reaches its goal as well as its target group largely via the Internet. STIWOT manages various websites on the history of the second World War, including Go2War2.nl and TracesOfWar.com and in future will continue to develop more websites.

Miscellaneous

Apart from management of its websites, STIWOT concerns itself with:

Foreign countries

STIWOT focuses mainly on the Dutch linguistic area but wishes to reach also those interested in WW 2 living abroad by building and managing multi-lingual websites. For the time being, STIWOT manages two multi-lingaul websites, e.g. WW2Awards.com and TracesOfWar.com. The site you are visiting now is partly set up in various languages.

Finances

STIWOT is completely dependant on donations and sponsors. The expenditures of the foundation consist mainly of hosting expenditures for the websites. Further costs, amog others are for packaging and handling and purchase of office equipment.
