The Breendonk Fort: one of the best preserved Nazi camps in Europe. It is located in the homonymous village, about twenty miles south of Antwerp. Although small compared to other similar
places, it was a real camp where Nazi barbarism was reigning without restraint.
We must not forget that this fort is a prison for forced laborers. I certainly would not like to be there, but this kind of prison is not supposed to be a place of delight ...
(General Von Hammerstein - summer of 1941)
