Tombs of prisoners of war and partisans dead in Belgium during the Second World War

Terug

Houthalen

Four Soviet citizens – prisoners of war who died in 1943 – are buried in a mass grave at the cemetery of Houthalen (Limburg province). A concrete cross was erected over the grave (in November 2006 by order of the Embassy), with engraved names and dates of birth and death. Once a year, in November, on the Memorial Day of all the fallen, flowers from the municipality are laid on the burial place, and on May 9 – wreaths from the Russian Embassy.

Dear visitors,

We would like to draw your attention to the fact that spelling of the names, surnames and places of birth of Soviet citizens buried in Belgium may be distorted due to the fact that they are quite often written only in Flemish and French in registration books and on monuments.

We thank the Brussels-Belgian Archdiocese of the Russian Orthodox Church, the organizations of Russian compatriots and Russian foreign institutions accredited in Belgium for providing photos and their efforts to preserve the memory of the heroism of the Soviet soldiers who fell in the Great Patriotic War.

The Embassy will be grateful for providing any information and photos of Soviet military graves of the Second World War in Belgium and the ceremonies held on them. Please send material to the email address of the Embassy amrusbel@skynet.be with the note «War Graves».
