"War museum" Overloon by nighthawk
Overloon Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 5 photos
I was but a young teenager when we visited the overloon-museum.
I remember driving along a boring straight road, trees along side, and then suddenly the entrance to the museum.
As I remember it, there were baraques with photographs displayed and in the parc we walked through were armoured trucks and tanks.
I learned that the parc was the actual battle site, fought in September and October of 1944. Terrible fights, you can read more on the internet site of the musem -->
The battle of Overloon
I found it very impressive and the stories about civilians fighting along side the liberators of our country, were very moving.
Too bad I do not know where my photographs of that day are, perhaps I just didn t have a camera yet.
