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.

De buurtschap De Horst bij Groesbeek ligt op een steenworp van de Duitse grens. Bij de luchtlandingen op 17 september 1944 werd De Horst snel bevrijd. Maar niet voor lang. De Duitse troepen kwamen terug en De Horst lag midden in het schootsveld. BijnThe hamlet of De Horst near Groesbeek is just a stone's throw away from the German border. During the airborne landings of 17th September 1944 the hamlet was soon liberated. However, the liberation was short-lived and before long, the German troops

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.
