Halen 44 Helmets

Limburg commemorated the First World War with the exhibition "Limburg 1914 - 1918: Small stories in a Great War". 44 concrete Stahl helmets that symbolize the German occupation in Limburg. Each helmet represents one Limburg municipality and was artistically worked by local artists, associations and schools. Taken together, the helmets show very different and varied perspectives on the theme of war and memory.

 

The 44 helmets are now on the field where the Battle of the Silver Helmets in Halen took place. A place where helmets are a permanent symbol that commemorates the First World War in Limburg.
