9/44 - Pétange

Description

At the so-called Red House, situated at 2 Athus Street in Pétange, September 9,1944, the day Pétange was liberated from the Nazi occupation, has become the center of attention of the new exhibition room dedicated to the men and women who paid the ultimate price in the name of freedom.

The permanent exhibition focuses on the WWII years and encompasses three specific periods: the invasion, the occupation and the liberation of Pétange.

Hundreds of documents and photographs show:

  • A detailed chronology of events,
  • The actors – victims and heroes,
  • The living memory covering the remembrances as well as the numerous monuments honoring the liberators.

By means of interactive technologies – furniture with built-in iPads and projections on walls and the floor – visitors are invited to better understand these awful war years.
