Reconstructie Schakelhuis

During WWI the Germans occupied Belgium. The Netherlands remained neutral. Thanks to the enclave situation, Baarle-Hertog was the only non-occupied Belgian municipality. The 'Wire of Death', an electrical barrier, closed off the national border. Here you see a reconstruction of a link house. Copyright photo: Mie De Backer
