Listen: The village would be removed from the map – now the ghost town will be brought to life

  • The Belgian village of Doel was to be removed from the map to enable the expansion of the port of Antwerp – at least that was the plan that had existed since the 1960s.

  • But after years of resistance, where residents and activists fought to preserve the city, there are now new plans to revitalize the village.

  • “It’s like a blank canvas, there are endless possibilities here,” says Liese Stuer, who is one of the residents.
