Kortrijk in the first world war, day by day, 100 years ago.
I had the idea to revive the first world war in Kortrijk via Twitter. This way, a tweet would pop up in your timeline and would make you think about it for a minute.
It turned out that Egied van Hoonacker wrote a book about the day-by-day events in Kortrijk during that period of time. This was a goldmine to say the least. I used the book as a source for the tweets.
Het station en stationsplein worden door bommen beschadigd, alle ruiten op het plein zijn kapot. 2 soldaten en een burger overlijden. pic.twitter.com/gRri6vyl5f
