  • Having lived in Belgium for a long time myself, I already know the story of "black faces" or "gueules noires", I know the solidarity that unites them, the lack of racism that sets them apart. From daughter of Italian immigrants in Belgium, I also know the difference of sacrifice and nostalgia. For this, every time, to the "Bois du Cazier", I can't hold back the lacrime...ma at all, lest we forget, the executioner of Cazier is well worth a visit. To get the full picture, I recommend a trip to Blegny mine, near Liege.

  • Place to visit where we discover the mine, but also the lives of the miners, the story of the disaster of August 8, 1956. Educational and various (Museum of glass and the industry complement the time of mine). Worth a visit for those who knew, who remembered but also for teaching values with children

  • Moving and instructive Excellent for the cultivation of the memory on the lives of miners. Possible Museum and I recommend the commemoration on August 8 where you can meet some former miners where Fez families from Italy who lost one of their family members in the disaster of the cazier.

  • Not just as Italians, is a step that must not be missed on a visit to Belgium: it costs 8 euro and 1 euro plus there's an audio guide essential to appreciate better places and history. There you go 2-3 hours of strong emotions. The Museum is well taken care of and documents sometimes affected.
