On the 5 th of april 1943 the German Erla airplane factory in Mortsel (primary Minerva automobile factory)was a bombing target by the Allieds.
But all bombers missed theyre target, killig over 900 Flemish civilians living in the village surrounding the factory.
I spended a great time of my life in and near Mortsel, the story has always been very ..."alive"...
Commermoration is taking place all week end long.
