Les enfants de la résistance

Vendredi, Samedi, Dimanche

BELvue Museum

It’s spring 1944, and an allied pilot is lost in occupied Belgium... Put yourselves in the shoes of a child of the resistance to be able to help him reach England so he can get back to fighting! 

 

Full of fun and specially adapted for a young audience (8-12 years), this exhibition, based on Benoît Ers and Vincent Dugomier’s series Les enfants de la Résistance explains, in an educational way, the main themes of World War Two and the Resistance in France and Belgium. A treasure hunt gives the children a chance to step into the shoes of a member of the resistance: throughout the exhibition, they must solve clues to help the allied pilot get back to England.
