In Westerbork worden meer dan honderdduizend Nederlandse Joden, Sinti en Roma in herinnering gehouden

In the middle of the province of Drenthe lies a place with a grim history: Westerbork transit camp memorial center. The lives of over a hundred thousand Dutch Jews are commemorated here.

The central thread of the permanent exhibition is the personal stories. Discover the stories of the people who were transferred via Kamp Westerbork, but also of the guards, train drivers, neighbors and people who helped Jews hide or escape. Embankments and reconstructions mark the original sizes and locations of some of the barracks. Former paths and roads have been re-laid. The former assembly site has 102,000 stones, each representing the life of a person who was deported and never returned.
