Birthday of Betico Croes, known as the father of the Aruban nation

This official holiday in Aruba marks the birthday of Betico Croes, known as the father of the Aruban nation.

Born on 25 January 1938, Croes was an Aruban political activist who was a proponent of Aruba's separation from the rest of the Netherlands Antilles.
