Roermond cemetery reflects living city

According to international literature, late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century cemeteries 'reflect' society. In a sense, they mirror the social relationships in the living city at that time. As part of his PhD research, Maurice Heemels is the first to put this assertion to the test using a concrete example: the Roermond cemetery 'Nabij Kapel in 't Zand'. Heemels hopes to obtain his PhD from Maastricht University on September 16th.
