The text on the plaque is:
"First houses after the war 1940-1945. First stone laid 16-09 1946 by H.v Rijckevorssel v Kessel Mayor of St-Oedenrode"
This block of houses was the first social housing project for low income workers after World War II in this town. During Operation Market Garden where the 101st Airborne Division fought against the Germans on Hell's Highway a lot of buildings were destroyed. Mayor v. Rijckevorsel v Kessel was the major from 1915 to 1943, when he was laid off by the Germans. After the war, at 25 April 1946 he was reinstated by Queen Wilhelmina. Unfortunately he died 6 days after laying the first stone for these houses at 22 September 1946. There is still a street named after him in Sint-Oedenrode.
This portal exists and this project played an important part in the rebuilding of this town after WWII which has to be remembered. Therefor I think this portal needs to be in the games.
