Former Synagoge of Kampen and its collection

Former Synagoge of Kampen

The former synagogue of the city of Kampen in the Dutch province of Overijssel stands on the IJsselkade. The synagogue was built in 1847 to the design of city architect Nicolaas Plomp. During the German occupation of the Netherlands during World War II, especially in 1942, almost all the Jewish inhabitants of Kampen were deported to extermination camps. After the war ended, Jewish life in Kampen was not resumed. The Jewish community of Kampen was officially merged into that of Zwolle in 1947. In 1984, a marble plaque, the Jewish Monument, with names of victims was installed in the facade. Since 1972, the building has been on the national monument list. Since 1984 it has been in use as a Municipal Exhibition Hall, which also pays attention to the Jewish history of Kampen.
