Holy Antonius Abt Church Terheijden
The Saint Anthony Abbot Church in Terheijden was during the liberation in World War Two severely damaged. The restoration work on the church is clearly visible.
The ANWB has placed a marker on the church to show the places of the restoration after the Second World War.
On 29-10-1944 Breda was liberated by the First Polish Panther Division. Then this Division went further to the Northern Netherlands.
During the liberation of Terheijden many houses, buildings and the church were damaged.
From the air, the Allied forces bombarded the bridges over the Mark and the Wilhelmina Canal. German Artillery made lookouts in the high church towers of Den Hout, Teteringen, Terheijden and Wagenberg to look out over the area.
