Built in 1983 and located on the German-Dutch Border just over 3hrs from Amsterdam, the Westerbork Museum in Hooghalen contains a permanent exhibition depicting Dutch war time under occupation, with special emphasis on the persecution of the Jews under the Nazi regime.

Not a death camp in itself, it was a transit place for prisoners destined for the extermination camps in the East. The history of the camp is represented by means of photographs, documents, artwork, maps, and objects and the documentation centre houses a collection of books, documents, photographs and tapes.
