The conservator of ‘Kazerne Dossin’- one of our study visits- in the national news about the refugee crisis in Europe!

Herman Van Goethem is historian, legal expert and conservator at Kazerne Dossin, a documentation centre on the Holocaust and human rights in Mechelen. He was interviewed by two national newspapers about refugee issues in Europe and how his museum is attempting to find a way of dealing with human rights today.

To learn more about how Kazerne Dossin’s human rights projects contribute to civil society, or how the museum relates to current issues, why not register for our conference and discuss with us how sensitive themes like the refugee crisis can be considered at heritage sites. Find out yourself how Heritage interpretation can bridge the past, present and our common European future at the study visit to Kazerne Dossin on 22 May.
