Migration is, now more than ever, of great interest. Learn about Flemish migration from the past to today. At the Bois du Cazier from 19/01 to 21/04. Migration is a phenomenon that is apparent in all countries and with all peoples. But it has always been assumed that the Flemish are more comfortable in their own regions and have an attraction to settling down close to home.However, many have proven that this is not the case and, throughout the centuries, have moved away in search of a better life or future. Who were, and are, these emigrants? Why did they leave their homes? Where did they settle? How were they received abroad? This stunning exhibition sheds some light on this little-known part of our country's history.
