Primary Education

The Camp Westerbork Memorial Centre offers various programs for pupils in the top two years of primary school. The students hear the story of a Jewish family with children of a similar age to their own and from their own area, who were imprisoned in Camp Westerbork, or they can visit the camp led by a guide. In consultation, the program can be adapted to the specific needs of your school.

In consultation with the educational service of the Memorial Centre, we have compiled a comprehensive selection of educational programmes. When making an appointment, please use the sample programmes below as a guideline to what we can offer. We can ‘pick and mix’ to tailor for individual needs. The group rates are for groups from education and for adult groups respectively.

The camp grounds and museum are located 2.7 km apart. Because of its proximity to the Radio Observatory, you cannot drive to the former camp site with your own bus. The programme times allow for walking to and from the former site. If your group use their own bicycles, shorten the programme time by an hour.
