Historical locations | École Capitaine Pirlet

Since the time the Belgian army took over the „Houthulst-Kaserne“ in 1946 in the Iserlohner Straße from the British occupation forces, several soldiers wanted to fetch their families for the duration of their stay in Germany.
The children of the Belgian soldiers had of course to attend school during their time abroad, and for this reason a school was set up in the former Talstraße (known today as Martinstraße). A bus took the children to school, and the facility was used until the time of the withdrawal of the Belgian military in 1956. Today the former school building is used by the Lebenshilfe Kreis Unna e. V.
