Post Breendonk Memorial
A group of us who were working at Olen Camp visited Fort Breendonk just outside Antwerp. I revisited about 10 years ago. This is a link to the web site, it looks as though the memorial has had an update.

I've heard there was once a massive bar brawl in the Blue Angel, I'm sure I wouldn't have been part of it though ;)
