Original size 870 × 561 px

For a few days during the liberation from Valkenburg, the Geul was the front line. It flows through the villages (from East to West) Stokhem, Etenaken, Schin op Geul, Valkenburg, Houthem, Meerssen and Itteren. The red lines are motorways. They were not yet built at that time.
But by German artillery fire from the heights near Schimmert the citizens of Valkenburg still can not leave the caves and there is a threat of hunger.
