Herzogenbusch Concentration Camp

  Lunettenlaan 600, Vught      (+31) 736 56 67 64     more than a year ago

A small part of this former SS concentration camp houses the Herzogenbusch Concentration Camp Museum. There is a memorial centre, a preserved part of the old camp that has remained unchanged and the execution grounds where prisoners were shot. The crematorium, the rebuilt barrack and the monument to to the camp's child victim's are especially moving.
In total, at least 31,000 people were imprisoned in the camp between January 1943 and September 1944 for shorter or longer durations. Alongside Jews were other unlucky souls, mostly Roma (Gypsies), resistance activists and Jehovah’s witnesses. Of these people, 421 children, women and men died in the camp from hunger, disease, and maltreatment; 329 prisoners were shot just outside the camp.
But for the majority of the prisoners, Herzogenbusch Concentration Camp was an intermediate stop. From here they were transported to other camps, which, in most cases, meant death. The museum is open on Mondays in the months July and August (12.00–17.00).

Never knew that the Netherlands also had to suffer from the Nazi's like we did. This museum should be visited by everybody especially since it's free! Make sure you visit the place where all the poor people were shot. There is a incredible amount of energy there.
