IN FLANDERS FIELDS …

“DE IJZERTOREN”
Flanders’ most popular peace monument
Situated in the heart of Europe, Flanders has been the battle field of Europe during many centuries. During the last 5 centuries we were occupied by the Spanish, Austrian, French, Dutch and German. On our soil armies from all over the world, including Britain, USA and Canada clashed. No wonder that there are few places in the world where the cry “NO MORE WAR” reverberates as loud as here.
