On April 19, 1943, the 20th transport left the Mechelen transit camp to deport 1,631 Jews to Auschwitz. Thanks to resistance actions, both inside and outside the wagons, 236 of these deportees managed to jump from the train that would lead them to destruction.

Escape Landscapes from the 20th Convoy – 236 Photo Exhibition

236 — Land(es)capes from the 20th Convoy

Jo Struyven / Luc Tuymans

From 20 January 2023, the Jewish Museum of Belgium, in partnership with the Auschwitz Foundation, presents the exhibition entitled ‘236, Land(es)capes from the 20th Convoy’. It is set up in the museum’s project space and offers an artistic look at an exceptional and forgotten event in the Second World War.

The 20th convoy

At 10 p.m. on April 19, 1943, the 20th convoy departed from the Kazerne Dossin transit camp in Mechelen with 1,631 Jewish deportees in cattle cars, heading for Auschwitz.
Thanks to resistance actions, both inside the wagons and from outside, 236 of these deportees managed to jump from that train, that was leading them to extermination. An unique event in Europe under the Nazi administration.

Jo Struyven, photographer

The work of the Belgian photographer Jo Struyven (°Sint-Truiden, 1961) takes us back to these acts of resistance – commemorating the 80th anniversary in 2023 – and gives us a glimpse of the landscapes in which this striking story took place.
Taking the perspective of those who jumped off that train, an act for which many of them paid with their lives, Struyven creates a contemporary ‘memorial’ with 19 large ‘nocturnal’ black and white images, and one colour print.

Jo Struyven :

The 20th convoy, heading for the unspeakable “Auschwitz”, crossed the area where I grew up, barely 50 meters from my childhood bedroom — I found out 2 years ago after meeting Simon Gronowski. Ever since, I imagine the distress of the deportees. The destination was unknown to them. Some, sensing the worst, tried to escape it. I wanted to give an account of this border between life and death, between resignation and the impossibility of choosing, and the freedom regained with resistance to the oppressor’s plans.

Luc Tuymans, visual artist

In dialogue with Jo Struyven’s photographs, two works by Belgian visual artist Luc Tuymans (°Mortsel, 1958) evoke the destruction of the Jews and Roma of Europe. Die Wiedergutmachung (The Reparation) depicts body parts – left the eyes of gypsy children who had been experimented on by the Nazis. … images that in its incompleteness, reflect the inability to represent facts and memory .

Art after the Shoah

“Writing a poem after Auschwitz is barbaric”, wrote German philosopher Theodor W. Adorno in 1949. Through two contemporary perspectives from the visual arts, this exhibition seeks to address this question of the (im)possibility of art after the Shoah in a new way.

Testimonies & Catalogue

This exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue book edited by Daniel Weyssow and Jo Struyven and published by the Auschwitz Foundation entitled Land(es)capes from the 20th Convoy (press release on April 19, 2023), as well as an educational space presenting the testimonies from interviews and archives of convoy escapees.

Jews and the Resistance | Marc Michiels | 20221120


Lezing Marc Michiels : De verzetsactie op het 20ste transport Mechelen-Auschwitz. Studiedag CegeSoma & Kazerne Dossin , 20 nov 2013, in Kazerne Dossin , Mechelen , Belgium.

Camera notities van Joods Verzet & Transport XX door Michel van der Burg. Ik was nog net op tijd voor deze lezing van Marc Michiels. De dag daarvoor filmde ik Simon Gronowski de hele dag en avond in Saint Sépulcre, Luik. Plan was om na overnachting in Luik , van daar uit naar de studiedag te gaan. Maar al onderweg in de auto toen ik borden Brussel zag herinnerde ik mij plots dat Simon Gronowski terloops iets gezegd had over ‘actie’ ‘morgen’ ‘Waterloo’ (dat drong niet tot me door toen tijdens filmen) en besloot ik dat op te zoeken in Brussel, nog net op tijd voor de speech van Amir Jafari, 12 jaar en Afghaanse vluchteling. Na maken van reportage daar in Brussel, besloten alsnog naar Kazerne Dossin te rijden voor rest van studiedag : de Afternoon Session …
Moderator Ward Adriaens – met bijdragen van Thierry Rozenblum, Herman Van Goethem, Laurence Schram, Marc Michiels, Arnaud Bozzini, en Rudi Van Doorslaer.

On 20 November 2013, roughly 70 years after the attack on the 20th Convoy from Mechelen to Auschwitz in Boortmeerbeek, Kazerne Dossin and Cegesoma jointly organized a study day about Jews and the Resistance. The symposium languages were Dutch and French.
