TRACES THAT REMAINED

In the fall of 1944 in the area between Meuse and Peel,
over 3000 adolescents and men were rounded up in raids
by the nazis and deported to Germany for forced labor.
These events cost 120 men their lives
and caused permanent injuries to the survivors
and to those that stayed behind at home

From Baarlo 23 persons were deported.
Of those 5 men did not survive the war.
1944 - 2004
