During the Second World War the paths of peoples’ lives at home and abroad intersected, and their lives were changed forever. Brabant Remembers has collected these unusual and inspiring stories for them to be passed on. In this way we can connect people and places, both in the past and in the present.
We will be telling these 75 life-changing war stories from 75 locations in Brabant in 2019 and 2020 in a creative and deeply moving way.

Living History AR-App
On 22 September Brabant Remembers launched a living history app in the Wings of Freedom Museum in the Dutch town of Best. In this app 30 actors bring ten stories from the Second World War to life at places in Brabant that remind us of the war. Using this augmented reality app, Brabant Remembers shows the impact of the war in a contemporary way and introduces younger generations to the same dilemmas in today’s world. The app can be downloaded for free on IPhone and Android devices.
