Kazerne Dossin

Memorial, Museum and Research Center on Holocaust and Human Rights

Kazerne Dossin is a memorial, museum and research center, located at a site of historical significance in Belgium. Between 1942 and 1944, the Dossin Barracks were used by the Nazis as an assembly camp for Jews and Roma arrested in Belgium and Northern France. 25,490 Jews and 353 Roma were deported from the Dossin barracks, primarily to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Only 1,395 of them survived the horror.

Today, Kazerne Dossin is a memorial site for the victims. Based on the history of the site, we encourage museum visitors to reflect upon issues of exclusion, discrimination and mass violence, from both the past and the present. The research center maintains an extensive archive and library, answers questions from the public and conducts research on the Holocaust, the role of the barracks and the many victims.
