Plaques Killed Employees

These plaques are on the former gatehouse of the factory in Renkum and commemorates the workers who were killed in World War II.

On the facade of the old water tower you can still see the bullet impacts of the Canadians who shot at the German snipers who had entrenched themselves here.

The buildings are now on the Parenco site, which is only accessible after permission.
