Bullet Impacts Rabenhauptstraat 39

During the liberation of the city of Groningen in April 1945, the Allies marched on from Drenthe, in the province of Groningen. Access from the south was Paterswoldseweg. In and around the City Park took place several shootings.
The shortcut to the Hereweg went through Rabenhauptstraat. The building number 39 came under fire, because it was thought to be found the enemy here. The traces of the measures are still visible.
