Dit museum heeft bij mij een diepe indruk achtergelaten. Dit kwam voornamelijk doordat het verleden er vanuit een persoonlijk jasje gepresenteerd wordt. Ik zou iedereen een bezoek aan Westerbork aanraden. Het verleden is er om van te leren.

Er wordt een goed overzicht gegeven van Kamp Westerbork en van de situatie en de omstandigheden in die tijd. Kinderen kunnen gewoon mee. Er valt genoeg te leren over deze verschrikkelijke periode.

Erg indrukwekkend museum. De persoonlijke verhalen zijn erg aangrijpend. Na een bezoek kun je naar het kampterrein lopen of het pendelbusje pakken, waar ook weer genoeg te zien is. Een museum dat eigenlijk voor iedereen verplichte kost is.
