Kazerne Dossin (Holocaust and Human Rights museum)

Recommended
The Holocaust and Human Rights museum is housed in a dramatic edifice built like a massive window-less bunker facing the former Nazi barracks that were, during the occupation, the antechamber of the concentration camps for 25,835 Jews and gypsies from Belgium and Northern Europe... only 1,240 of whom survived. The museum pays them homage and takes a compelling and thought-provoking look at racism, radicalism or exclusion through past and recent genocides. An essential page of history.
