Breendonks Blauw
35 paintings inspired by the camp, a prison of the SS and Gestapo. The writer W.G. Sebald’s own words about the chilly darkness of Breendonk in the great novel Austerlitz: ‘what I saw now before me was a low built concrete mass, rounded at its outer edges and giving the gruesome impression of something hunched and misshapen: the broad back of a monster, I thought, risen from this Flemish soil like a whale from the deep’.
