Is Passchendaele part of your family history?


With ‘The Passchendaele Archives Database’ the Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917 aims at adding a face and a story to those who gave their lives during the Battle of Passchendaele. They no longer only will be a name on a wall of missed in action or on a tombstone, but hence they shall have their own discernible spot in the landscape.

Would you have a relative or a link with a soldier who died at the Battle of Passchendaele? A file is started on the basis of a questionnaire and possibly additional documentation such as letters and photographs. The museum investigates for you what exactly happened on that fatal day. Share your family history with us and ensure by that way that their stories still will continue to live on in the future:

Original gifts or loans and donations are always gratefully accepted.

Karen Derycke, Simon Augustyn en Lee Ingelbrecht are the driving forces behind this project. Historians Karen Derycke and Simon Augustyn are responsible for the research of the fallen. Lee Ingelbrecht offers cartographic support through his training in landscape development.
