2019 : A festive year at the CegeSoma!

Fifty years ago, in 1969 , an enthusiastic team of six young researchers came together to initiate pioneering work on the history of the Second World War … The Centre for Research and historical Studies on the Second World War (CREHSGM), the predecessor to the CegeSoma, was born!
Also in 1969, the first edition of the Journal of Belgian History appeared, which is published by CegeSoma/the State Archives since 2011.
Seventy years ago, in the evening of September 3, 1944, Brussels was liberated by British troops accompanied by Belgians of the Brigade Piron.

 

Therefore, in 2019 we celebrate three anniversaries.

 

Throughout this year of celebration, CegeSoma (State Archives) is planning a range of activities, events and book releases.
