    Well maintained former concentration camp mainly used for POWs and also as a holding camp for transport to the larger and more destructive camps in eastern Germany/Europe. Guided audio tours at self pace, mine was a little too quiet and hard to hear even on full volume. Very good record of who was here, what happened, and when. Very disturbing and eerie but a necessary reminder of what can happen when people become evil. Many eyewitness accounts from prisoners and many moving stories captured from people who were imprisoned here (resistance fighters, soldiers, Jewish, and others who didn't fit within the Nazi agenda). If you're in the area, take the time to tour.

    We were here on a school trip. The guide was really nice. We have to remember what happened in the second World War and this is a good way of doing so.

    Everything is written on Holland and France. For tourists not enough translet on some pictures. Missing a lot of English translet . Great place to visit to see some history . I recommend to everyone
