Drive a short distance north to Mechelen and Willebroek. Belgium was not spared the horror of Nazism and its concentration camps - the Fort of Breendonk in Willebroek is a moving and striking example of these tragic events. The memorial reaches out to those who, in one way or another, fought for freedom, stood up to oppression or suffered as victims of racism and blind fanaticism. Visit Kazerne Dossin, which the Nazis also used as a transit camp from 1942 and 1944, and from where 26,000 Jews and Romanians were deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Overnight stay in Brussels.
