The years of war: 1917

This year, 1917, Belgium is occupied by the Germans. In my “hunts” through the streets of Brussels it was very hard to decoy a prize ( house) marked with the year 1917. I only found one. Nevertheless I also found memorials displaying the year 1917.

One remembers a Belgian young soldier executed by the Germans in 1917 in Charleroi. The other concerns Count de Broqueville. He was the Prime Minister of Belgium from 1911 to 1918.
