Digital image bank

Kazerne Dossin digitizes, on a daily basis, original documents about the Holocaust in Belgium and collects them in an image bank. The image bank currently contains more than 1.5 million documents. The most important component of this image bank includes the many portraits of deportees from the Dossin Kazerne . All of these portraits can be seen on the portrait wall in the museum. In addition to the portraits you can also find the transport lists for each transport, including the names of all deportees per transport, as well as documents about Belgian Jews who arrived here via the French camp of Drancy.

If you wish to access the digital documents and archival collections, please submit an application and then visit the reading room of the archive.  More info
