Traces of war in the forrest of The Hague

On 3 March 1945, the Bezuidenhout was the scene of a major disaster. That day the neighborhood was bombed by mistake by the English Air Force. They planned to bomb the V2 installations in the Haagse Bos. They missed their target and hit the Bezuidenhout residential area.

Stichting 3 maart '45' organizes a walk that take place partly through the Bezuidenhout district and partly through the Haagse Bos. The walk takes about 1 hour, starting at 1 p.m.

Nationaal Monument Oranjehotel

Het Oranjehotel was de bijnaam voor de Duitse gevangenis tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog. Ruim 25.000 mensen zaten hier tussen 1940 en 1945 opgesloten, vaak omdat ze in het verzet kwamen tegen de Duitse bezetter. Maar ook joden, communisten, Jehova's getuigen en anderen die de Duitse wetten hadden overtreden.
