"Present history of Willemstad" Willemstad Favorite Tip by Pavlik_NL
Willemstad Favorites: 4 reviews and 4 photos
Favorite thing: In 1926 Willemstad lost it's strategic value. What good does this fortress do against modern bombers? Still it got one tragedy in it's journals. On the 30st of May 1940 a Nazi-ruled ship carrying several hundreds of Belgian prisoners of war ran against a mine and was blown skyhigh. 200 of the Belgian soldiers died. Just outside the gates of Willemstad a memorial site remembers those poor souls.
