FROM WAR HISTORY ONLINE ~ The Liberation of Belgium

 Guest Blogger
September 2019, people all over Belgium are celebrating the 75th anniversary of its liberation from Nazi Germany during the Second World War.
75 years ago, Belgian citizens first welcomed their Allied liberators after living under a repressive, dictatorial regime for four years.
