Another location visited, this time the cemetery of the insane in Belgium.
Between 1921 and 1981 there was a psychiatric hospital that used to treat patients with a psychiatric disorder were excluded from society and were generally ostracized by their family. In this psychiatric hospital were included only men.
In total in the period about 1750 people buried in this cemetery. Today there is only one site and grave crosses over to commemorate the fact that a former psychiatric hospital has been here. A very small portion of the cemetery is kept tidy. Another, much larger portion of the cemetery is now left to the fate of nature.
It was quite a bright, warm and sunny afternoon whilst taking photos here. Earlier we did park in what we thought was a recreation area for a lie down on the grass and a well-earned rest but it was a new hospital grounds so we were moved on after 15 minutes – just as I got off to sleep!
Thanks for looking in.
