Hotel Landgoed Ehzerwold

 

Located in Almen, Hotel Landgoed Ehzerwold is a beautiful estate with a rich history. Opened as a hospital in 1911, it was converted to a sanitorium in 1920. During WWII, fierce battles were fought here, battles we’ll learn more about as we re-live the events of The Liberation. 

 

Now a hotel, Ehzerwold will be IOFF’s barracks, complete with military décor, Dutch cuisine, and themed evening entertainment. Take a tour!

Battlefield Discovery

Based in The Netherlands, Battlefield Discovery will bring The Liberation story to life for us. Using official historical documents, personal accounts of people who were involved, and local knowledge of the surroundings as they were at the time, Battlefield’s guides will take us back in time to better understand the military operations and battles of The Liberation.

 

We’ll travel through the Reichwald Forest in Germany, visiting the sites of Operation Veritable and Blockbuster. Together, we’ll walk routes taken by the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Canadian Divisions, beginning in Megchelen (near Emmerich) and finishing in Apeldoorn, as we learn about Operation Cannonshot.

 

With Battlefield Discovery, you’ll take a tour back in time, walk in your fathers’ footsteps, and learn about his past through the story of The Liberation.
