➝ An exhibition of the Jewish Museum of Belgium

At the Kazerne Dossin Museum in Mechelen we will see photographs by André Goldberg, photographing Holocaust witnesses. There will be 37 portraits in the exhibition. The website says "This work remains the only one of its kind to date in Belgium and has been accompanied by testimonials collected by Dominique Rozenberg, sociologist and photographer's companion".
