The library of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven is a tribute to America’s role in the relief and liberation of Belgium in WWI.  The building is adorned with various symbols and inscriptions related to America, such as this one in Latin above the front door:  “SANGVINIS AMERICI BELGII LIBERATIONIS CAUSA PROFVSI RECORDATIONI PERENNI."  (As a lasting memorial to the American blood that was shed for the liberation of Belgium.)
