Holocaust memorial

In 1943, the Nazis brought more than 300 Jews to this ex-convent before deportation to concentration camps. Only 38 survived. We are reminded of these horrific events by a monument created in 1969 by Lucien Wercollier, who was himself a camp survivor. Luxembourg’s Jewish community numbered more than 3,900 in 1940, but more than 1,200 perished in the Holocaust.

Direction Maulusmühle/Clervaux: RAF A-29 Lockheed Hudson turbo-prop plane wreck in the forest. A monument commemorates the six Belgian and British airmen who were shot down by German anti-aircraft fire. Their plane crashed into the forest.

Battle of the Bulge museum - 30 minute visit (free access with the Luxembourg Card) and GI monument.
