Remembering the Belgium Refugees

64,500 Belgium refugees came into Folkestone harbour at the beginning of the First World War. In 1916 the town was presented with a painting “Reception of Belgian Refugees” by Signor Franzonia a refugee from Belgium. An enactment at the harbour pier of this painting which now hangs in Folkestone's Town Hall was planned but sadly cancelled.
