I've been knowing the Dossin Kazerne and its awful history all my life as Mechelen is my home town and used to live around the corner so to speak. I'm still from a generation in which my parents and grandparents used to tell us stories about the Dossin Kazerne and what atrocities took place there during WWII. Last week when visiting Mechelen I showed my partner this place for the first time in his life. We stepped inside the Kazerne itself and told him that what happened here so many years ago could still happen today, any time, as certain European countries still have not yet learned from history!! All people seem to need is a well-oiled propaganda machine to justify to themselves it was and is a "good thing" to seclude healthy people from society. Healthy people. ... and that's how terrible horror atrocities all start : blind belief in propaganda. Just walk inside the Kazerne and probably you'll get the chills all over!
Only five stars can pay tribute to the meticulous, momentous work that has gone into giving a voice to the millions whose lives were destroyed by unimaginable horror, while warning that if democracy fails such horrors can, and do, return. It is impossible to do everything justice in one visit.
