Airborne Museum Hartenstein, Oosterbeek, battle of Arnhem

The stormy history of the city of Arnhem - or, rather, the tracks and the reconstruction that we see today in her are one of their main attractive tourist ones. The museum that we presented/displayed next tells to the process of systematic destruction and the fantastic resurgence of Arnhem.

Considered a strategic site during World War II, this gorgeous large city was victim of lamentable destructions, that were corrected with care. In our days, Arnhem is a place that overflows life in each corner, and to take a walk by her could not be one more a pleasanter activity.

Nevertheless, the memory is constituent of the towns, and this the inhabitants of to this know it well city. The Hartenstein Museum, in the town of Oosterbeek, is only 5 kilometers of the scene whose history relates. A permanent service of trolebús connects the main stations of both places.

Batalla de Arnhem was triggered in September of 1944, in the territory that mediates downtown and Ede. Also well-known like Operation Market Garden, it had like objective to capture the bridges, considered of great even value the military strategy of the Allies. The guides of the Hartenstein Museum realize routes by the fields in which this intense battle was developed, including in their visit the sites acted as outstanding.

Every year, the museum organizes a different exhibition that it approaches from a defined perspective an excellent aspect of Batalla de Arnhem. Around this point of view it is that they turn the filmic photographies and projections that are exhibited there.

In addition, elements closely related with the event, as uniform, arms and artillery instruments and material compose a panoramic one that offer so much the allied perspective as the German, and allow to have a plural vision of the facts that took to the destruction of Arnhem.

This important space for the memory is a projection but retrospection place, also towards the future, that it invites to watch forwards, illuminating the future with the light of the past.
