Centering on this fatal deportation, it presents the history of the "Final Solution" in Belgium and in Europe

  • The Construction of the National Holocaust Memorial in Berlin PhD dissertation by Simone Mangos, College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales, 2007. "To my knowledge, this is the only thesis on the memorial, which addresses the findings of Nazi ruins on site in 1998, their subsequent removal and the quasisecrecy surrounding it, as well as the level of deceit in the construction process and its effects on the resulting memorial. It is the only thesis, which acknowledges and addresses the outright failure of the memorial to elicit a respectful commemoration of the Holocaust."
