Antwerp commemorates the First World War

In 1914 Antwerp briefly was the capital of Belgium. A last beacon of hope for a population on the run and a country that was on the verge of war. One hundred years later the Peace Centre has organised a contemporary commemoration programme with international appeal, along with more than 50 partners. A unique and human story of refugees, art and a pontoon bridge across the River Scheldt. The Antwerp ’14-’18 information desk in the town hall, at 1, Grote Markt, 2000 Antwerp, is open from Wednesday to Friday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
