Territories of Memory is a centre of education in the name of resistance and citizenship set up by former political prisoners who survived Nazi camps. To perform work of remembrance with children, young people and adults, the association develops a wide array of initiatives for communicating the past, promoting respect for others, and encouraging everyone’s involvement in building a democratic society that safeguards fundamental freedoms.

When the Second World War came to an end, numerous people decided to do all they could to ensure that the horror of armed conflicts, large-scale massacres, and Nazi concentration and extermination camps never happened again.

In the early 1990s, far-right parties and movements made their reappearance in democratically elected assemblies in both the north and south of Belgium.

Today, a fair number of freedom-destroying ideas have become commonplace and some people are no longer shy of claiming that none of it happened at all. So, what are we going to do when the voices of the last witnesses have died out?

In the face of the new threats and beyond our justified indignation, it is urgent that we engage with the issue on a daily basis.

The association believes that work on remembrance is vital in order to avoid reproducing the mistakes made in the past, in order to understand and decode the world around us and in order to participate in building a more solidary society that places the human being at the centre of all concerns.

Rapport d'activités 2020

Depuis de nombreuses années un vent autoritaire souffle un peu partout en Europe et dans le monde. Avec des idées extrêmes au pouvoir ou qui parviennent à se glisser au cœur de la vie politique et qui brouillent la ligne de démarcation entre ce qui est acceptable ou non, avec des chefs d’État d’envergure qui n’hésitent pas à légitimer la violence extrême comme politique, niant (la dignité de) celles et ceux qui en sont leurs victimes. C’est exactement ce que l’on voit dans les yeux du policier qui a coincé le cou de George Floyd pendant de longues minutes alors que ce dernier ne cessait de répéter qu’il ne pouvait respirer : « Le racisme, c’est quand ça ne compte pas .»

La ligne politique des Territoires de la Mémoire, fondée sur les valeurs de dignité, de liberté, et d’égalité des droits, doit donc être cohérente et ferme dans un contexte de contradictions, d’hypocrisies et d’estompement des normes.
