The brand new Dossin casern relates the Belgian part of the Holocaust. Stories, testimonies and pictures guide you through the 1940s and bear witness to the discrimination and later the deportation of Jews and gipsies. More than 25,000 people were deported from Mechelen to Auschwitz-Birkenau. In this emphatic place of remembrance, the Transit Camp Dossin dissects the mechanisms behind the violation of human rights, in the past and present.
