Children War Graves Neer

At the Our ​​Lady Chapel in Neer are at the back of the chapel under the large cross six childgraves. These children died on 08-01-1944 when a mine exploded. These children were not buried in the churchyard at Neer, because the church and the cemetery were under German shellfire. In memory of the six children several plaques are placed.
