Memorial Kazerne Dossin

The Dossin Barracks was a deportation center for Jews from 1942 to 1944.
On the facade is a memorial for this.

"Belgians don't forget
that from these barracks 24,161 Israelites
were taken to the German camps

The six bars from the authentic railway line symbolize the 6 million Jewish victims of all ages.

Opposite is a freight wagon with which 25,628 Jews, Roma and Sinti were taken to the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp in 28 transports.
