World War II in the Southern Westhoek


2015 commemorated the start of World War II. 75 years earlier, war broke out for the second time that century, gripping all of Europe. The occupation also made itself felt in Belgium and the Southern Westhoek. Many remembered the atrocities committed by the Germans in World War I and kept quiet to save their own skin. Others actively joined the resistance. The children walked among them, hearing stories and having adventures.

The interviews are the thread running through the publication with DVD presented in March 2016. In 2016 and 2017, a mobile exhibition also travelled around the region on the theme. In addition, several cycling and walking tours were developed along striking places and stories in the region.
