Memorial & Chapel Our Lady of Everlasting Help

In the quarter of Tilburg called Broekhoven, heavy fighting occurred during the liberation of the city on 26 and 27 October, 1944. During this battle the members of the volunteering air-raid precautions division of block 611 made the vow to Mary to erect a little chapel in Her honour in case they would survive the fighting.

Included in the brickwork is a plaque with text that memorizes the members of the volunteer division as well as of the citizens of the quarter that perished. Later on a second plaque was included in the brickwork that memorizes those citizens that died in the battle and who did not belong to block 611.
