Last year, I went to the deportation museum in Belgium. It happened to be open on Mondays, where as the Jewish Museum of Belgium in Brussels was closed on Mondays. Later that week, a terrorist attack was made on museum goers at the Jewish Museum in Brussels. Several people were killed in the shooting. Usually after this type of illegal political activity, people are afraid to return to the location of the violence, ensuring the effectiveness of the terrorist act. The only way to undermine the terrorist act is to render it powerless by ignoring that particular act and carrying on with patronage as usual. In support of the Museum, and also- of course-for the purpose of learning this slice of critical history, we went to visit the Jewish Museum in Brussels. It tells a very important perspective of the various Jewish populations in Belgium and the stories of these people.
