  • to do with the fort of Breendonk, these 2 places are linked in the horror, a train station and a careful visit camp can be long if you are interested in the details, j was framed but the Nice "hostess" m allowed to finish the visit the next day (July 2016) you have t any town for you store

  • Well set up museum with impressive images, photos and film which makes clear how one in Belgium during the second world war has dealt with Jews and Gypsies. Self-criticism is not missing and we were really touched by what we saw and heard ... The Westerbork Museum of Belgium but then just a bit different!

  • The persecution of the Jews is there "vivid", a must for everyone! The youth should know to what a war can lead, the rest to what populism brings us. The slogans from then until today can be found in our society

  • Lieu très moderne et musée très très complet (4 étages vastes). Malheureusement, la visite est quand même très monotone si on ne prend pas de guide, alors qu'elle peut durer 3-4h si on veut tout voir.
  • It gave me almost full history of world war II and pictures of survivors....
  • 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.
  • Very pleasant and instructive presentation of a particularly traumatic part of our history. The link with situation today.
