The Passchendaele Museum in Zonnebeke launched the ‘Names in the Landscape’ geoportal on 25 May 2022, with the support of the Flemish Government and Library and Archives Canada. It is an online portal.
The online portal shows where more than 1,400 Canadians were killed or presumably buried. The Menin Gate in Ypres lists 6,928 missing Canadians. The museum tries to give them a tangible place in the landscape one by one via the geoportal. You will find photos, personal and military data and anecdotes, for example.
As a visitor to the portal, you can also add information yourself, helping to build an online platform for relatives, interested parties and other museums.
