Background: A protest march through Baronville, in the Belgian Ardennes near the border with France, was staged Feb 26 against a West German military base to be built there. Among those taking part were survivors of German concentration camps - including Dachau and Buchenwald.
Representatives of the world war tow Belgian underground movement also marched with their flags. The Mayor of Baronville had unsuccessfully tried to prohibit the demonstration. Outside the town, the marchers laid flowers on the Monument of the Resistance. The memorial stands at the limit of the proposed West German camp.
