25,490 Jews and 353 Roma were deported from the Dossin barracks on 28 train transports to Auschwitz-Birkenau between 1942 and 1944. Few of them survived the ordeal. Today the old military base is a serene site of reflection and remembrance, a Memorial. In the museum, facing the former barracks, one can immerse oneself in the history of the Holocaust in Belgium. The museum provides testimonies not only of exclusion, discrimination and mass violence, but also of hope and resistance. Reflect on human rights violations, then and now. In the research centre one can find more about the role of the Dossin barracks during the Second World War or about the experiences of a loved one or family member.
