Those plastic white windows that look terrible on anything. I love seeing them replaced.

What are those "drawings" in the middle of the square? Archeological ruins?

The ruins of a bastion from the 19th century that was demolished in the 50's. Most of the stones were sent to Warsaw to rebuild the city.

Kazerne Dossin, Mechelen, Belgium

Quote:
The Mechelen transit camp, or officially SS-Sammellager Mecheln in German, was a detention and deportation camp established in the Dossin, the oldest casern at Mechelen, by the Nazi German occupier of Belgium. The transit camp was run by the SiPo-SD,[5] a branch of the SS-Reichssicherheitshauptamt in order to collect and deport Jews and other minorities such as Romani mainly out of Belgium towards the labor camp of Heydebreck-Cosel[6] and the concentration camps of Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland.

During the Second World War, between 4 August 1942 and 31 July 1944, 28 trains left from this Belgian casern and deported over 25,000 Jews and Romas,[1][7] most of whom arrived at the extermination camps of Auschwitz-Birkenau. At the end of war, 1240 of them had survived.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mechelen_transit_camp

In 2012 a new museum was opened next to the old buildings, which focuses on the Holocaust, its roots in society and other genocides.

I spent a lot of time finding a proper pictures of the area before the museum, but could only find this air picture on which the museum is already being constructed in the left corner:



The big building there is the old casern itself.

How it looks like now:
