  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Very impressive, you have to join the tour to really get the experience
