The Liberation or Final Offensive, over the weeks leading up to 11 November, began on 28 September 1918 in the woods (the Vrijbos) at Houthulst. On that date, under the orders of King Albert I, the Vrijbos was retaken from the Germans. There were many deaths on both sides, as the Belgian military cemetery reminds us today. A major commemorative ceremony in the morning will recall the battle.Also the villages of Zonnebeke and Passchendaele were liberated on 28 September by the Belgian troops. Passchendaele had become a sad symbol of total war in Flanders. Many Belgian soldiers were weighed down by a profound sense of melancholy when they set eyes on the devastated village.At 2 pm commemoration services will be held to pay tribute to the fallen soldiers on both sides. After the service, the Belgian Passchendaele Memorial Garden will be inaugurated in the chateau grounds in Zonnebeke.
