After the Germans conquered Belgium, the military administration gradually started pursuing the same racial policy as in Nazi Germany. The SS-Sammellager Mecheln (ĎMechelen transit campí), also known as the Dossinkazerne, played an important role in this policy. Before dealing with the history of this transit camp, we will first discuss the pursued racial policy in Belgium, as they cannot be separated from one another.
- The racial policy regarding Jews in Belgium
- SS-Sammellager Mecheln
- Assembling in the Dossinkazerne
- The deportations
- The liberation and the museum
