The prisoners in Camp Amersfoort were put on the infield by the Germans during World War II.
It was a narrow piece of land with barbed wire on all sides and became especially notorious as a place of punishment.
The prisoners were there in all weathers, hours, even days, to stand.
The name rose garden was a nickname: the prisoners set themselves the points of the barbed wire for as roses, a sign of hope.
The memorial center is also to see a miniature of the rosary.
