End Augustus 1944, Antwerp got liberated by the allies. The Germans had to flee away. Till that time they occupied a fort that they used as a prisoner camp, later an "interrogation camp" and pass through location to put people on transport towards other camps of which only a few would return. Those who stayed in Breendonk were risking their lifes too. How many died here is not for certain, but it must be many.
