History

During the Second World War Camp Westerbork was known as ‘the gateway to Hell’. It was a transit camp to concentration camps like Auschwitz and Sobibor. However the camp, built in 1939, was first used as a refugee camp for Jews fleeing from Germany and Austria. 

Until its demolition in 1971, the camp was used almost continuously. Below learn more about each period of time.
