Tree Planting Day Peace Forest

With the Vredesbos project, 100 years after the Battle of Passchendaele, a tree is planted in 2017 for every fallen soldier with a known grave in the two British cemeteries of Polygon Wood. A monument of all missing soldiers will also be built in a central area in the new park. Family members of fallen soldiers may also plant a tree in the park. The Vredesbos will keep the memories of the soldiers who lost their lives during World War I alive for many generations to come.

The thematic exhibition 'Zero Hour 07-06-1917: the archaeology of a battle' in the Heuvelland Visitors Centre (currently under construction) illustrates the material heritage left behind by the Mine Battle of Messines, in which a selection of excavated artefacts occupy a central position. The visitor will learn about the function of these objects during the battle and how they were rediscovered many years later. The exhibition also demonstrates how the wartime heritage has been dealt with in the years since the Great War came to an end. More info: www.flandersfields.be/en/1917
