In spring 1944, an Allied airman is lost in occupied Belgium... Step into the shoes of a child of the Resistance to help him get back to the UK so that he can rejoin the war effort! 

The Brussels Comic Strip Festival and publisher Le Lombard have put on an exhibition based on the Children of the Resistance series by Benoît Ers and Vincent Dugomier. This fun event, catering for a young audience (aged 8-12), gives educational insights into the main issues associated with the Second World War and the Resistance in France and Belgium.

A puzzle gives children the chance to step into the shoes of a child of the Resistance. As they pass through the exhibition, their challenge is to solve clues to enable an Allied airman to return to the UK.
