Reconstruction Den Draad Reusel

In a few places along the Belgian-Dutch border is a reconstruction of Den Draad (The Wire): The electric fence which was built by the Germans in World War I, along the border to prevent escapes. Hundreds of people have been electrocuted by the fence.

This specific reconstruction is located on the Dutch side of the border, which is incorrect.
