Memorial Weduwe Van Enschodtbrug-bridge

This bridge was on 4 September 1944 the route of the Allies who could, tipped by Robert Vekemans, attack the German defenders of the A-12 bridge at Boom from behind and save this bridge from destroying. Antwerp was liberated the same day.

 

The Weduwe Van Enschodtbrug-bridge was demolished in 1946. A small part remained as a memorial.
