In 1983, Camp Westerbork Museum in Hooghalen was built on private initiative and with financial support from the Dutch Governement. Amongst other things, it contains a permanent exhibition of many photographs and documents.

The exhibition depicts Dutch war time under occupation, with special emphasis on the persecution of the Jews. The history of Camp Westerbork is represented by means of photographs, documents, drawings, paintings, images, maps, and objects.

The documentation centre houses a collection of books, documents, photographs, and videotapes, which are all available for research. Visitors can also consult the Memorial Books of the ‘Oorlogsgravenstichting’ (War Graves Foundation). They record the names of more than 140,000 Dutch people who were killed during the Second World War and who did not receive a proper burial.
