Named after the avenue that runs alongside it, Georges Henri Park was once the Jewish cemetery of Etterbeek, from the end of the 19th to the end of the 20th century. You can still see some traces of this history: two obelisks, a Jewish memorial and a sculpture of a woman and her child, in homage to the women and children who disappeared in the German camps during the Second World War. Next to the sculpture, engraved on a lectern, you'll find a poem by Marguerite Bergers, who was beheaded in Wolfenbuttel in 1944. You can also admire Lucia Bru's sculpture of a boat made of wood, steel and metal. This piece won the Brussels-Capital Region's inaugural sculpture competition.
As you enter the park, you come across a large round fountain with a powerful jet of water flowing from it. Take a walk through the scented garden, stroll through the classical gardens or visit the garden of remembrance and its Jewish memorial.
