 Een familielid brengt Richards portret aan op de fotomuur
The photo wall is one of the eye catchers in the visitor centre. At the opening event (September 2012), the wall already counted over 1,200 pictures of victims that are buried at Lijssenthoek. By adding new portraits each year, the visitor centre wants to highlight the importance of the ongoing research on the personal stories behind the headstones. This year some 100 new portraits were added. The relatives of Richard Van Neste were invited to bring on the photo of Richard. They came to honour Richard on the day of his death, 10 November.
