Hitler in Belgium

This documentary traces Hitler’s unknown stay in Belgium during the two world wars.

Numerous reconstructions illustrate his visits through Belgian cities as a young soldier in 1914-18 and as Führer in 1940. Discover Hitler’s secret HQ installed near Couvin to supervise the invasion of France in June 1940. On this site, two bunkers were built to provide safety for the Nazi leader in case of possible aerial attacks. These two bunkers are still visible today. In Brussels, Hitler was fascinated by the architecture of the Law Courts built by Joseph Poelaert. In Ypres, the Führer posed with his generals in front of the Allied monument built after the First World War.
