      1. That is very interesting Barbara! Would it be possible for you to tell me where you found the photo, please? I have been searching for a while & found nothing! I did have the apparent address in Bruges, but can’t even find that now!

          1. Thank you so much , Barbara! Wonderful photographs, & now I know exactly where it is. I hope that I will be able to visit the memorial in the near future!
            Best wishes
