Herzogenbusch concentration camp and its collection

Herzogenbusch concentration camp
Source

The Herzogenbusch concentration camp was the only SS concentration camp outside Germany and the German annexed territories. Between early 1943 and late 1944, more than 31,000 people were detained here. The museum consists of an indoor and an outdoor area. Outside, an architectural model illustrates the size of the camp. The crematorium, the fence and a ditch dug by the prisoners are all authentic. A reconstructed barrack illustrates how prisoners lived here.

    Wij vinden het een prachtig museum. Ziet er schoon en verzorgd uit. Alles goed weergegeven waar het in de oorlog allemaal over is gegaan. Het is zeer indrukwekkend. De ruimte waar verhalen worden verteld en gevonden voorwerpen worden tentoongesteld. Emoties komen naar boven. We vinden dat het allemaal goed tot uiting komt. Goed dat de herinnering in stand gehouden wordt voor ons nageslacht. We zijn vele malen in Yad Vashem geweest. Vreselijk wat mensen elkaar aangedaan hebben en nog steeds doen. Ineke van Dijk-de Kock
