World War II SitesLiberation Route Europe, Hattert, Netherlands

in World War II Sites

Almost nothing is left of Hattert Castle. An unprecedented tank battle takes place in its vicinity between the end of September and mid-October 1944. First, an American armored division takes on the Germans. The weather conditions are harsh. Rain turns the battlefield into a large mud pool in which tanks can maneuver badly. The Americans suffer heavy losses. They are relieved by a British armored and infantry division. The castle is completely destroyed during the battle.

Aangrijpend en meeslepend is het dagboek van Rose Jakobs. Een joods meisje dat samen met haar familie ondergedoken zit, eerst in Nijmegen, later in Beek. Uit haar aantekeningen spreken hoop, blijdschap, vertwijfeling, wanhoop, liefde, zorg, angst en nog veel meer. Haar jonge leven knakt als een roos als ze wordt geraakt door een splinterbom.
