The Hague and the Atlantic Wall

Picture: Impression 1

The liberation of Holland in May 1945 is almost 70 years ago. At the end of the Second World War, The Hague was badly damaged, and thousands of citizens, men, women and children died due to bombardments, hunger or persecution by the Nazi’s. The Hague had been particularly affected by the building of the German line of defense, the so-called Atlantikwall. The construction of bunkers and tank ditches brought an enormous amount of damage to the city that was partly demolished. Many of its inhabitants were put to the test when they were forced to leave their homes, 135.000 of them were relocated.

At the new exhibition in the Museon the visitor becomes acquainted with the history of the construction of the Atlantikwall in The Hague. The exhibition also links the importance of current issues in the area of freedom, democracy and the rule of law to its narrative by amply illuminating the new position of The Hague as the international city of Justice, Peace and Security.
