Kazerne Dossin: Memorial, Museum and Documentation Centre on Holocaust and Human Rights

Kazerne Dossin is a unique place of remembrance for the Holocaust in Belgium. More than 25,000 Jews and Gypsies were gathered in the Dossin barracks and deported to Auschwitz- Birkenau. A brand-new museum has been built opposite the barracks to shine a new light on this symbolic place. Kazerne Dossin explores one of the darkest pages in Belgium’s history, while also examining human rights in their contemporary context. The Memorial, Museum and Documentation Centre on Holocaust and Human Rights informs, remembers and warns against exclusion, discrimination and mass violence, in the past and today.

“The new museum owes its growing reputation to its efforts to render the Holocaust relevant to a younger public, drawing attention to the underlying conditions that can lead to human rights violations.” (History Today)
