Remembrance Bell Fort De Bilt

In World War II, Fort De Bilt was used by the Germans for the execution of 140 people, mostly resistance fighters. This remembrance ball, next to the other memorial, commemorates the victims.

At the bell are plates with the names of the victims who were known by name.

The bunker can only be visited when the fort is opened. Unfortunately, the opening hours are very irregular.
