Het belangrijkste deel van deze beeldbank omvat de al gevonden portretten van gedeporteerden vanuit de Dossinkazerne. Dit zijn alle portretten die je ook in het museum terugvindt op onze portrettenmuur. Ook Joden uit België die via Franse verzamelkampen als Drancy terecht kwamen, vind je hierin terug. Behalve de portretten kan je ook vrij alle transportlijsten terugvinden. Op deze documenten vind je de namen van alle gedeporteerden per transport.

  • BEFORE STARTING
    Can I use the image bank at home?

    It depends on which archival collection you want to access. You can consult the Dossin Barracks deportation lists and portraits of deportees on any computer (including at home). The contents of the other collections can only be consulted in the Kazerne Dossin reading room and at affiliated partner institutions. A complete list of these organisations can be found here. You must complete a research declaration for each consultation in each of these reading rooms.

  • SEARCHING THE IMAGE BANK
    How do I change the language?

    You can change the language in the Language menu at the top right. After doing this, the titles of the description fields will appear in the selected language. The descriptions themselves are not translated, and always only remain available in English.

    How can I search for and view a specific collection?

    Click on the Collections / Collecties tab in the dark grey column on the left. An overview of all available collections appears in the image bank. You can organise the collections in various ways. To do this, click on the Sort by drop-down menu at the top right / Sorteer op rechts bovenaan. 

    If necessary, type an additional search term in the Additional search term / Geef zoekterm in…field, and press Enter or click on the search icon at the back of the search field (black button with a magnifying glass). You can also further refine your search by selecting the desired filters in the column under the header Filter on the left of the main page / Filteren links op de hoofdpagina.

    The number of results will decrease depending on your added search terms. Click on the photo accompanying a collection to view an enlarged image. Click on the title of a collection to see the description of that collection. 

    Always remember to clear your filters before entering a new search. This is because the image bank will remember your previous assignment and will combine it with the new one.

    How do I search for collections and pieces around a particular theme?

    The column titled Filtering / Filteren on the left side of the main page contains a number of filters. You can select certain categories and keywords/match words as search terms. Combining certain keywords can lead to different results. For example, combining the “Anti-Jewish measures” category and the “Identification measures” keyword will lead to results on the registration of Jews in Belgium during the occupation. Combining the “Pre-war Jewish life” category and the “Identification measures” keyword produces results on pre-war passports and migration documents.

    You can also combine filters related to categories and keywords with a free search or with filters about the type of piece. 

    Always remember to clear your filters before entering a new search. This is because the image bank will remember your previous assignment and will combine it with the new one.

    How can I obtain a copy of the items in the image bank?

    You may always download a working copy of an image from the image bank for your own use. Click on the down arrow below the desired image. You can now save this image to your computer. In case of a collection, you can manually save the cover photo to your computer.

    Note: Downloading a working copy does not automatically imply that you have permission to reproduce or publish a piece. This requires permission from the copyright holder.

    How can I view the results in an enlarged view?

    Click on the image you want to view in more detail. A view will appear in which you can zoom in, with no attached description. Close the enlarged view by clicking the grey X at the top right of the page.

    How do I remove a selected search term or filter from the search?

    The search term you entered is displayed as a dark grey label in the Additional search term / Geef zoekterm in… search bar at the top of your screen. Click on the X next to your search term to delete it. You can uncheck filters in the column under the Filtering / Filteren header on the left of the main page.

  • CONSULT ARCHIVE COLLECTIONS
    How can I refine the results in a search that has been started?

    If the number of results is too high, type an additional search term into the Additional search term / Geef zoekterm in… search bar at the top of your screen, and then press enter or click the black button with the magnifying glass at the end of the search bar. The image bank will then combine all the terms entered, so that your search will be refined.

    How can I see the connection between my search term and a result?

    The image bank compares your search term to words in the title and content description of a collection, file or piece. The results that appear are thereby collections and pieces in which your search term appears in the title or the content description. You can scroll through the results to see the results in more detail. 

    Always remember to clear your filters before entering a new search. This is because the image bank will remember your previous assignment, and will combine it with the new one.

  • INTERPRET SEARCH RESULTS
    How are my results organised? How can I organise my results differently?

    A search can yield hundreds of results. These are sorted depending on the option chosen in the Sort by / Sorteer op drop-down menu at the top right. You can organise them in various ways: by relevance / most relevant, by date modified / laatst gewijzigd (ascending or descending), by file name / bestandsnaam, by last archived / laatst gearchiveerd (date of addition to the image bank, ascending or descending), by date of content / datum inhoud (ascending or descending) and by recently published / recent gepubliceerd (ascending or descending).

    Tip: The easiest way to sort is by the file name/bestandsnaam option. The relevant collections thereby appear first, followed by the relevant files and, finally, items such as photographs.  

    I would like to include images in a publication (online or analogue). What do I have to do?

    The reproduction of images from the image bank requires the prior written permission of the copyright holder. When you open a collection or a piece by clicking on the title, the full description will appear. The copyright holder is listed in the Reproduction rights field. For more information on how to contact the copyright holder, please email archives@kazernedossin.eu. If an image belongs to the Kazerne Dossin collection, you can contact us at this same e-mail address to request the reproduction rights. 

     

    How can I search for multiple words?

    Such as first and last name

    The image bank is set up to search in increasing detail. Are you looking for a person (a combination of a first and last name), or a description or title that has two or more words scattered throughout? Type the first term into the Additional search term / Geef zoekterm in… search bar at the top of your screen, and then press enter or click the black button with the magnifying glass at the end of the search bar. Then add a second, third, fourth… search term in the same way. 

    For example, if you are searching for “Michel Goldberg’. You type in “Goldberg” as a search term and find hundreds of results. Add “Michel” as a search term. All the documents about “Michel Goldberg” appear. 

    Note: There could be more than one person with the same name. You should therefore always check the date of birth on the documents.

    Specific combination of words

    You are searching for a specific combination of terms, such as “Association of Jews in Belgium’. Type the search query in full and at one go into the Additional search term / Geef zoekterm in… search bar at the top of your screen, and then press enter or click the black button with the magnifying glass at the end of the search bar. Only results with this specific word combination will then appear.
