Geluksplek

Lucky spot 21 Roerdalen: The Propeller of Herkenbosch

Two special happy places opposite each other.

The propeller conceals grief, loss, struggle, effort and sacrifice. It is a symbol for the six British planes that were shot down here during the Second World War. Twenty-seven young men lost their lives. That is also what happiness is about: courage, freedom, respect and gratitude. 

This is a social neighbourhood. The residents have their own neighbourhood association: the Dr. Biermansput.
To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the well, the neighbourhood built this little chapel of Mary in 1996.
A peaceful place where you can sympathise with victims of war and violence.

Location

The propeller of Herkenbosch is a war monument and chapel at the crossing of the Molenbergweg/Steegstraat in Herkenbosch.
