19 Sept 2009 - 29 Jan 2010. This unusual exhibition seeks to offer a form of huge family tree to the countless Brussels citizens descended from immigrants. Many of them are the grandchildren of foreigners who came to the city in their droves three generations ago.

The questions being asked are in relation to who these people were, why they came to Brussels and how they lived. This exhibition, organised by the city archives, attempts to answer these questions with documents and images from its extensive collection. Descendants also enrich the exhibition by giving personal testimonies.
