Welkom op de nieuwe website van het CegeSoma

Welcome to the new website of CegeSoma

Who are we? CegeSoma is the fourth operational direction of the State Archives and the Belgian centre of expertise for the history of 20th century conflicts. We conduct fundamental historical research, develop public history projects, conserve archives and documentation and are engaged in societal debate. This new thematic website was launched in December 2019 : information about our older activities is gradually added.
