On this corner stood the inn “The city Audenaarde”. You’ll find a plaque on the corner with the Baliestraat. In three languages you can read the inscription about Miss Edith Cavell. SHe stayed here in this inn during World War I For its contacts with the secret services, she frequently traveled to Ghent. Edith Cavell was a nurse and saved between 166 and 186 allies. On October 12, 1915, she was arrested by the Germans, accused of spying and executed by the National Shooting Range in Schaerbeek, where she was buried. Her death in 1915 caused international outrage, thanks to the British propaganda that portrayed her as an innocent, savior à la Florence Nightingale.
