The run-up to D-Day

The Run up to D-day

At the entrance to the military hall you will find a large glass puff with comic drawings by Teun Berserik. The scene of 20 meters long and 5 meters high shows the preparations around D-day. The whole is in line with the museum's collection, where a large amount of liberation material is also shown. The drawing was made in the style with which artist Hergé drew tintin's stories at the time.

The choice for Berserik as a draughtsman was a logical one, because Berserik is not only a talented artist, but he has also delved into World War II over the years. As a result, the enormous drawing is packed with details, which only stand out when the drawing is properly viewed. The light that falls on the glass wall also causes the drawing to live. There is plenty of seating space, so everyone can study the panorama at ease.
