  • A must to thinking about it. Enlightening but gripping. The explanation of the Guide encourages reflex to what happens today.

  • The museum is highly recommended. For students, I think it is really a must because many don't realize what happened during the second world war with the "Jews". You have to be a lot of reading but take your time and you're going to love. You can't actually understand that "people" to such atrocities are capable of. And the mistreat and torture still happens.

  • Absolutely worth a visit!! This museum tells the story of the world war in a unique way: everything is told from the perspective of the victims of this tragedy. A beautiful, modern building with a panoramic view on top of the museum. Most of all, we loved the enthusiastic explanation by our guide, Etienne!
  • Very well done.
  • Here you can learn a great deal about the Holocaust in Belgium from 1940 to 1944. You can learn a lot about the Holocaust in Belgium from 1940 until 1944.

  • Very educational museum about the holocaust and the history building up towards the second world war. A good mix of text, multimedia and photo's (3 languages: Dutch, French and English). But if you want to drink in the bar make sure you finish your tour before the museum closes. Very educational and expanded museum about the holocaust and the history of before and during World War II. A good mix of text, multimedia and photos (in 3 languages: Dutch, French and English). But if you want to eat or drink something at the bar, make sure you the tour good for closing time ends.

  • Many museums where you can read about the deportation of Jews. Everything could just a little more personal and interactive.
