Every name matters : Teambuilding

Take part in a meaningful project with your team. At Kazerne Dossin, we offer a unique opportunity for organizations, big and small, to participate in our special initiative: ‘Every name matters’.

About ‘Every name matters’

Kazerne Dossin is searching for 25,843 individuals to speak 25,843 names. They are the names of all the individuals who were deported from the Dossinkazerne in Mechelen to concentration camps during the Second World War.

This takes shape in a name project where the name and age of each deportee will be spoken in a language of choice. All names will resonate in the memorial space from 2025.

With this project, Kazerne Dossin aims to honor the deported and create a sustainable, serene memory and commemoration. We aim for a lasting ‘connection’ between the victims and as broad an audience as possible.

We would like to ask for your support in realizing this project together!
