    Also not a highlight where you could be proud of it, but witness terrible deeds from the time
    of National Socialism.

    -The shooting-place in the vunettes of Vught

    On 20 December 1947, this memorial was inaugurated by the Dutch Princess Juliana as a national monument.

    Here at the shooting-place
    26 limestone panels were lined up in a wall.
    On these boards were listed 124 towns and villages - from Alkmaar to Zwolle-.

    Below the 26 limestone tiles on a sandstone base, a quote from the Dutch national anthem was immortalized:

    I remain faithful to the fatherland
                      to the death <

    Behind the memorial, stands out
    big cross of oak trunks
    to the sky.

    And so that nothing really falls into oblivion from this inglorious time, the names of all those shot on this place, "under the names of towns and cities", were carved here forever in stone ...

    The execution site in Vught is a monument to remember. An impressive place on the edge of the Vughtse Hei.
