Here are the two National heartbreak moments for Netherlands Peoples on MH17 Tragedy:
1. A emotional letter to Vladimir Putin written by a Unlucky Dutch father:
A heartbroken Dutch father who lost his only child on MH17 has written an open letter to Vladimir Putin and the warring parties in Ukraine, telling them his life is now ruined.
"Thank you very much Mr Putin, leaders of the separatists or the Ukraine government! For murdering my loved and only child, Elsemiek de Borst!
"Suddenly she is not here any more! She has been shot out of the sky, in an unknown country, where there is a war going on!"

he open letter was picked up by media across the world. But some English outlets mistranslated the Dutch, prompting Mr de Borst to write a Facebook post explaining that he had not called Mr Putin a "monster". "Monster" is the name of the village where he lives.
Elsemiek, 17, was one of 193 Dutch citizens killed when Malaysia Airlines flight 17 was shot down over Ukraine.
Her father wrote in his public post that his daughter did very well in school, that she would have graduated next year and that she wanted to study engineering at university.

He said she was on her way to Malaysia for a holiday with her mother, her stepfather and her little brother.
"Aforementioned misters, I hope you're proud to have shot her, amongst others, young life and future. And that you will be able to look at yourself in the mirror tomorrow morning.
"Thanks again! Sincerely, Elsemiek's father Hans de Borst, whose life is ruined!"
