Between death and oblivion the body must undergo -tests-.
Before being laid to rest.
In the tranquility of legality.
Thanatos comes to the aid of logic.
Thus, at the least suspicion science inteferes.
Auxiliary to justice, it slices, weighs and measures.
With its customary sharpness, it calls on steel in the search of truth.
Under the theater lamps the forensic scientists and thier assistants are at work.
Why then did the deceased so quickly fail his alter-ego?
Far from esoteric rites and funeral liturgies, the practitioner carries out his sterile work on a subject that he will not cure.
The lips of his patient remain closed; his approach must be rigorous if he is to make the flesh speak.
The examination must be successful. The candidates passing through flock to the gate to obtain their certificates.
Protected by the graveyard that surrounds it, the Schoonselhof Forensic Institute could also have rested in peace. However, its burial plot has been taken away
Nobody really has the right to a concession for life.

The building itself is no more. I went there and the staff of the graveyard told me that they demolished it. However the building next to it is still available and it is worth a visit, too. The staff at the Kasteel is very friendly and helpful if you are really interested in the building and its history. You can always have a guide strolling around the area with you, telling you interesting stories!
The graveyard is very beautiful, as well.
Anybody knows if this place is still up? anybody knows where it is? Thanks
I love it.
