Since 2021 Memorial 40-45 Kapelle has been telling quite a remarkable history about the French in particular how they influenced this period with their armed forces. They also tell the story of the inhabitants of Kapelle during the occupation. This is all to be seen in our Museum on the Goessestraatweg.

After 10 years our collection of objects and documents has expanded so much that we are limited to receive schools or large groups. Because of that we want to move our museum next to the only French War Cemetery in the Netherlands, that is situated in Kapelle. There is no better place to tell the stories hidden behind these graves.

We need your support in order to do this! Will you help us so we can keep on telling this history? If you are interested in supporting the museum, please consider making a donation,  becoming a Friend or sponsorship.
