    A small documentary about the Breendonk fortress. Breendonk is only a dot on the gruesome map of concentration camps, but one which witnessed the same desire to annihilate the individual, which shared the same objective of enslaving and negating the human person. Although the history of Breendonk, the war and the post-war years hardly give cause for optimism, we want to put across a message of hope, like those men who gave humanity the universal declaration of human rights. The defence and respect of these rights. That is our cause. Credit to Mr Olivier Van der Wilt, conservator of the fortress who gave me permission to shoot this small documentary and give people a view to what happened there. If you ever get there, you can always visit the fortress as it is open to the public ! More info at:http://www.breendonk.be/
