The National Museum of the Resistance (Dutch: Nationaal Museum van de Weerstand, French: Musée National de la Résistance) is a museum in Anderlecht, Belgium which traces the history of the Belgian resistance and German occupation of Belgium during World War II.

Museum[edit]

The museum seeks to raise awareness[1] of the role of the Belgian resistance during both World Wars and preserves document and artifacts[2] relating to the period. The museum also touches on the German occupation, Holocaust and deportations of prisoners of war during the conflict.[1]

It is housed in the building in which the Faux Soir was produced during the German occupation and is supported by the Front de l'Indépendance association.
