The Reformed Church in Nuenen is popularly called the Van Gogh Church. When his mother was bedridden for a while, Vincent made a beautiful painting of this church. The nice thing is that the surroundings of the church have hardly changed. You can still recognize the atmosphere of the famous painting.

L115: Robert Cole en Joe Man

Robert Cole memorial
5681BH Best

In the woods between Son and Best, fierce fighting took place on 18 and 19 September 1944. German troops fought here against American paratroopers who had landed the day before and against advancing British troops from the south. The German troops advanced from Boxtel and Best and tried, among other things, to recapture the drop and landing areas at Son. Many soldiers died in this battle, including the brave Lieutenant Colonel Robert Cole and Private Joe Mann. After the fighting, both men were awarded the highest American military decoration: the Medal of Honor. At this listening point you will hear their stories.
