Text in original Preserved German Tanks publication:

This is an early production Ausf D2, with the characteristic ‘dustbin’ cupola, and the loading hatch in the side of the turret. It is on display at the intersection of Wilhelminapark and Paul Windhausenweg in the town of Breda. It was originally captured by Free Polish troops. It was later presented as a memorial by the Polish forces that liberated the town in 1944. It was brought in from Meppen in Germany where the 1st Polish Armoured Division had its headquarters in 1945 (the Bundeswehr now has an Erprobungstelle testing ground at Meppen). Its suspension is damaged. It is now displayed with its engine area filled with concrete.
