Kazerne Dossin on

Mission of Kazerne Dossin


December 2012 saw the opening of Kazerne Dossin: Memorial, Museum and Documentation Centre on the Holocaust and Human Rights (Mechelen). The museum, which focuses on the Belgian aspect of the Holocaust, uniquely combines Holocaust education on the one hand, and human rights education on the other. The mission statement summarises the objectives of Kazerne Dossin as follows:

‘Kazerne Dossin draws on the historical account of the Jewish persecution and the Holocaust from a Belgian perspective to reflect on contemporary phenomena of racism and the exclusion of communities and on discrimination for reasons of origin, faith, belief, colour, sex or sexual orientation. Additionally, Kazerne Dossin seeks to analyse group violence in society as a possible stepping stone to genocides. Thus conceived, this museum makes a fundamental contribution to the educational, social project in which citizenship, democratic resistance and the protection of individual basic freedoms are central.'
