1. Gedenkteken Stadhuisramp Heusden

Show sight on map

On the evening of 4-5 November 1944, in South Holland, in the final months of World War II, there was an urban catastrophe. When the Allies advanced in Brabant, the German people sought redemption behind the new line of defense. They blew up the highest point, the city's city hall and the towers of two churches. The German people have done the same elsewhere to prevent the Allies from using tall buildings as watchtowers after crossing the loophole.

In 1579, the original gates remained while new fortifications were being designed, which were built between 1613 and 1620. The spring door has a small stone fortress outside the door. The current gate was built in 1974 and was built on the original foundation.
