Jew and mother of two, Rachel Souritz joined the resistance during the war. She suffered a huge loss. Not only was her first partner executed, but her father, brother and sister were deported via the Dossin barracks and never returned. Rachel was a firm believer in the importance of human rights, a cause she championed throughout her life. In the name of the family, daughter Paulette De Coninck gifted original photographs and documents to Kazerne Dossin. Consequently, Rachel’s sister Pauline now has a face on the wall of portraits.
