    In a very good way told: the transit camp Westerbork, a sort of gathering place where a lot of Jews and Gypsies were made to concentration camps and extermination camps. Young and old are speechless, a lot of personal stories and very well built. By bus you can then to the location of the camp itself. Unfortunately here almost nothing more from all over: only a single incomplete barak. Yet it feels there as a prison camp. Too bad we in Netherlands in the years 70 had so little sense of our recent history. For decades, prisoners and refugees here have ' lived '. The bus back, an old Connexxion bus, was scorching. The heating was full, while the outside was still 24 degrees. Many people came there dizzy. Probably something defective and hopefully one time. Good restaurant in the museum For international visitors: there are some drawers in the museum with English and German translations of the Dutch signs. The sound-bars in the park are all Dutch.

    Very informative Museum, gives a good idea of the time ' 40-' 45. Also tour at the camp. Duration, over an hour. There is much and also very fascinating told. Next time also extensions to expect on the camp. Worth it!

    Unbelievable what happened here 77 years ago in close collaboration with dutch government, police and military police. Everybody enjoying freedom in the Netherlands should visit Westerbork.

    The information and history told is chilling. A sad reminder about how people were treated during the war. Worth visiting.

    Interesting museum. While there is an English book it would be better of the pages & exhibits were numbered to read them at the correct position. Disappointing how much of the camp was destroyed.

    Great museums, very quiet place, the hick to the camp location is beautiful. Don't expect to see much on the camp site, you will only see the remainder of the buildings. But, the camp German commander house still exists in original conditions. A lot of sad stories. MUST VISIT. WELL WORTH IT.
