Memorial Surrender Walcheren

The monument for the capitulation in Vrouwenpolder contains a replica of the memorial stone from the house where the surrender took place of the German occupying forces to the Allies on November 8th 1944.
The house was torn down in 1973 and a replica of the original plaque has been placed in a monument.
This memorial stone is made out of a white natural stone with a German eagle that is being strangled by a hand around its neck in bas relief. This symbolizes the victory over the occupying forces. The present monument can be found in a specially arranged park next to the Dutch Reformed Church in Vrouwenpolder.
A small plaque notices all these facts.
