Visit the Fort Breendonk!

The National Memorial of Fort Breendonk is one of the best-preserved testimonials of the Second World War Nazi atrocities.  

A captivating visit highlights the sinister page in history that the SS-Auffanglager Breendonk truly is. From the gloomy dormitories and forced labour sites to the torture chamber and the execution ground: the fort exudes the horror the prisoners were subjected to during German occupation.  

Through testimonials, pictures and film footage you meet the men and women who suffered and sacrificed their lives for our liberty.
