These pavers tracing the underground course of the tunnel (which was dug at a depth of 9 metres) carry the names of all of those who escaped, with those who were later recaptured and executed by the Nazis marked in black lettering (see photos by M. Kitson). A guard tower has been reconstructed as well as a small section of fence to give you an idea of how far the escapees dug. Signs among the trees show how life looked as the area where the camp stood has now been reclaimed by the trees.
