During the Second World War, the life paths of people from both home and abroad crossed each other, these lives are changed forever. Brabant Remembers collects and tells these special and inspiring stories. This is how we connect the past and the present, places and people, with each other.
In 2019 and 2020 we will tell the 75 personal life-changing war stories from 75 locations in Brabant.

Living History AR-App
The Second World War provided Brabant with countless different stories. Both anxious and hopeful moments have found their place in history. Brabant Remembers brings these stories to life in a poignant Augmented Reality App.
Re-live the stories of the people of Brabant during the war and visit the places where lives were changed forever. Feel the doubt, the fear, the hope and the courage of people who had to make choices which led to life-changing consequences for themselves and others.
The Brabant Remembers App allows you to step right into these personal stories. Where somebody once had to make a life-changing decision, you are now presented with the same choice.
The Dilemma Maze has been officially opened in Bergen op Zoom. This interactive art installation presents visitors with far-reaching choices in conflict situations from the past and the present. During a walk through the Dilemma Maze, the impact of the Second World War is made tangible and passed on to younger generations.
The launch of the app is the start of the Brabant Remembers programme. This culturally-innovative programme consists of large projects that are associated with the universal stories of the war, coupled with (inter)national ambassadors from Brabant.
