German Forest Sint-Michielsgestel

The German forest lies behind the Former Seminarie Beekvliet. The German forest was created under duress by the German occupier during World War II by the hostages who were imprisoned in the Seminarie Beekvliet. The street name German Bos has been changed to Willem Sparkweg out of respect for the fallen.
