VR Movie: Fort Breendonk

Fort Breendonk was originally covered with earth for protection. During World War II, the Nazis forced prisoners to uncover the structure. The earth was piled to make a bank just outside the moat, effectively cutting off the view of the camp by curious outsiders. Over 250,000 cubic meters of soil were relocated.
