Second World War

During WWII, Fort Breendonk was a Nazi conentration camp for political prisoners.  While it was not a death camp like the more famous concentration camps in the east of Europe, it was a place of torture and death for the Belgians who fell afoul of the Nazi regime during the war.  It is one of our most highly recommended visits to learn about the unspeakable acts committed by the Nazi regime.
