75 years / Brotherhood of Political Prisoners of the Neuengamme Concentration Camp

The Brotherhood of Political Prisoners of the Neuengamme concentration camp was created 75 years ago, on 15 October 1945. We wanted to organize a large commemorative ceremony and hold our annual meeting at the Royal Military Museum in Brussels, with a visit of the new permanent exhibition “War - Occupation - Liberation”.

Because of COVID-19 it proved impossible to participate in the ceremony for the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Neuengamme concentration camp on 3 May 2020.

At 12 a.m. we have therefore deposited a wreath under the large wall picture “The political prisoners in a concentration camp”, as a tribute to all war victims and in particular those of the Neuengamme concentration camp.
