The station building where German airbornes held civilians hostage - may 1940

Close to this location the Dutch had fortified themselves on the 12th of May. Later [the afternoon of the 13th] the German tanks would first arrive in Dordrecht on the square in front of the station. Inside the station the Germans had held some civilians hostage. These civilians could later testify on the severe fighting that took place between the Germans and Dutch at this very location.
