The blown up viaduct at Rhenen - may 1940

The road leads towards the Grebbeberg [to the right of the picture]. On the right [centre] the railway leading towards the Betuwe. At this position the Military Police successfully defended a barricade against illegally retreating Dutch soldiers and the SS assault by the Group Wäckerle. The factory that Wäckerle's group would occupy after being rejected at the viaduct is situated a view hundred yards to the right of the scene in the photo.
