War belongs in the museum. That is the motto of the War Museum Overloon. In the museum, the history of the Second World War is presented. Here, you will see how it came to be that, over a period of just five years, more than fifty million people lost their lives. But also how the oppressed population managed to cope very resourcefully with the restrictions and shortages. Attention is paid to the resistance in the time of occupation, and also to nature of the persecution. And finally, of course, to Liberation, with special attention to the Battle at Overloon.
