GUIDE 53 IN BREENDONK VERTELT
Next to being a guide and lecturer, I'm a member of a group of actors who perform in the event Breendonk Vertelt. This way, this group of volunteers, directed by Bieke Schutijser, support the project of the Friends of the Fort of Breendonk.
Included are some impressions of past events at Breendonk.
