Camp Westerbork Remembrance Centre

In the Remembrance Centre Camp Westenbork they tell the daily life in the camp. The personal story is central: Films, stories, objects and letters give a multiplicity of impressions. An original barrackwall, a film made in 1944 in the camp, a trumpet which was played on in Auschwitz. The experiences of individuale families are shown in various presentations and give a moving image of the prosecution in World War 2.
