Spy school location information

Post by Andy H » 27 Dec 2002 15:49

A-Schule West (Agent School West, with its sister school in the East being based in Belgrade) was located between The Hague and Schevingen on an estate called Park Zorgvliet.
Is this estate still in existence or was it demolished during/after the war and what is left to see or anything there to note it’s past usage?

The park is still there and you can visit it(you can get a ticket at the city hall or tourist office).

During ww2 the park was dramatically changed. In the nord-western part of the park was a german build tankditch. (where the President Kennedylaan and Johan de Wittlaan are now). This ditch was 40 mtrs wide and 10 mtrs deep. The park and tankditch were part of the fort ScheveningenClingendael(which was part of the Atlantik Wall)
A part of the park was demolished to give a clear shot for the germans for FLAK, radarequipment, etc.
One of the buildings that was demolished is a church, which was demolished in 1942/1943
The was a wall around the park wich was demolished in 1946.

It was designed as a villapark. In these days most of the villa's are embassy's or offices

Now it is famous for the Katshuis(see pictures below), a house that is bought by the government in 1961 since then 3 prime-ministers have lived there and now it is used for receiving and acommodate state guests.
