The Fort Breendonk in Belgium was featured in the Zero Euro banknote 2017-1st print series. The historic fort was a former military base that served as a Nazi prison camp during the World War II. It became a national memorial in 1947 to recognize the inhumane suffering of the prisoners during the Nazi regime in Belgium. The note was designed by Richard Faile with an authorized printing by the European Central Bank (ECB) to promote tourism and to highlight the rich culture, beauty, and history of Europe. Printed on its front design are the famous landmarks of Europe including the Brandenburg Gate, Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower, the Colosseum, Sagrada Familia, Manneken Pis, and the Mona Lisa. The note shares many of the same attributes of a real Euro except that it is marked with 0 and is not considered a legal tender.
