130 new portraits - 55,000 visitors

The photo wall is one of the eye catchers in the visitor centre. At the opening event (September 2012), the wall already counted over 1,200 pictures of victims that are buried at Lijssenthoek. Relatives say it means a lot to them if their beloved ones are displayed on the wall. There is enough space to commemorate all Lijssenthoek-victims (almost 11,000). By adding new portraits each year, the visitor centre wants to highlight the importance of the ongoing research on the personal stories behind the headstones.
