The CCLJ and La Maison de la Culture Juive are offering a themed walk to mark the International Day of Remembrance for Victims of the Holocaust. The walk will (re)discover the history of the Jewish refugees who settled in this working-class district of Brussels, close to the Gare du Midi and the legendary Union stadium, at the turn of the 20th century. They were very much present here until the 1960s.
