Maison des Justes

Rue Pige au Croly 56 6000 Charleroi, Belgium

As many as 600 families lived in Charleroi before the war. Jewish life was active, with schools, butcher shops, and a famous hotel, the International, used by all the new arrivals from the east. The Jews of Charleroi have since emigrated yet again, this time to the Belgian capital. Only some forty families remain in the town.

Note, however, a small museum, the Maison des Justes.
