Short intro

Kazerne Dossin is a Memorial, Museum and Documentation Centre on the Holocaust and Human Rights. It was established in 2012 and focuses on the Belgian aspect of the Holocaust. During the first year over 100.000 people visited the museum. Meanwhile Kazerne Dossin has become one of the leading memorial sites for the holocaust in Europe and most recently they received a special commendation at the European museum of the year awards 2014.

The challenge

The huge amount of data they had was scattered across 8 different databases. Kazerne Dossin needed a solution to share their collection with visitors in a clear way while supporting this complex data structure for internal researchers.

The Solution

Kazerne Dossin opted for a structure where they linked all related data to specific people. MediaHaven allows the creation of sets. Every set is a dossier about one deported person, containing all related files. By applying this structure they can now share their vast collection in a clear way with visitors. Also internal researchers can access all data at one place as MediaHaven joined all the databases together in one platform.

The Benefits

No more searching through different databases. MediaHaven supports a streamlined workflow allowing internal researchers to access this complex data through one central platform. Also visitor engagement has gone up tremendously as they can now share their collection in an easy and instructive way.
