"The museum in Malines, a memorial, has been designed as the antechamber of death. Centering on this fatal deportation, it presents the history of the "Final Solution" in Belgium and in Europe. It allows us to understand how in Belgium nearly one out of two Jews perished during the Second World War. Furthermore, it is not only a museum about the deportation of Belgian Jews, but also about their resistance. Thanks to the support they received from the Belgian people, many managed to escape from their Nazi pursuers and their collaborators." An excellent resource in Belgium.
The presentation is based on the sculptures and buildings of Ken Treister, and features a virtual tour of the memorial. A fascinating new site.
