As part of the trip we went to a lot of museums, including Hooge Crater Museum.  Hard to realise how much these show of everyday life.  Every year to this day, farmers still dig up live incendury, and bodies, in field they have used every year since 1919.

I have been in the past, but this was an amazing trip just focused on the various families, and their stories. So, very personal
