A temporary exhibition about the liberation of Luxembourg - which is celebrating its 75th anniversary - has opened in Pétange.

The location for the temporary exhibition is, of course, fitting and appropriate: the municipality of Pétange lies on the border with France and Belgium and was where Allied troops first gained access onto Luxembourgish territory, commencing the end of the four-year occupation of the Grand Duchy.

The exhibition will be at the former site of the Lycée Technique Mathias Adam in a large tent and will tell the story of the liberation over the 950 square metre space. Running from 25 October to 29 December, the exhibition details key events, ranging from independence celebrations in 1939 through to the invasion and the eventual liberation and Battle of the Bulge.

Organised by the municipality of Pétange and the 'Remembrance committee', the exhibition is free of charge. If, however, you don't happen to speak French or German, you can always read our recent history article on the liberation.
