"The museum in Malines, a memorial, has been designed as the antechamber of death. Centering on this fatal deportation, it presents the history of the "Final Solution" in Belgium and in Europe. It allows us to understand how in Belgium nearly one out of two Jews perished during the Second World War. Furthermore, it is not only a museum about the deportation of Belgian Jews, but also about their resistance.

In 1979, The Auschwitz Museum Archive reproduced selected pieces of art and sent them to writer/photographer Alan Jacobs. In 1996 Jacobs, and his son Jesse, returned to the camps to find and photograph the identical scenes depicted in the art. Krysia Jacobs then devised a way to present them as you see here. They are the result of work over a 24 year period.
