The entire museum part of the camp was in Dutch. It looked like they had a good amount of information, but nothing we could understand. Being able to read is vital as much of the camp no longer exists. Could have been quite interesting if more information was provided. Also parking was very limited - we ended up parking in... More

We visited on a rainy day, this seemed very fitting. It was very moving to visit and further understand what happened. Very sad, but a worthwhile visit and tribute.

We are lucky we learned about this relatively unknown concentration camp from a Dutchman while in Amsterdam. It is a short drive from Amersfoort and contains a small information center. Not much of the camp remains, but enough is there to portray the tragic story of the Dutch resistance movement members and even 101 Russian prisoners of war. We took... More

If you visit Holland go to Amersfoort, to the "Polizeiliches Durchgangslager Amersfoort", the former concentration camp. I went there for the first time, many many years ago due to my fathers stay in the camp during WW2. And I have been returning ever since, a few times a year. It's impressive, located in the still of the forest you can... More

This low key historical site and small museum illustrates the reach of the Nazi death machine. The information is in Dutch but the pictures tell the story. Take the walk to the firing squad and reflect on walking out, where so many walked only one way.

We felt a bit cheated by our visit here. Really wanted to visit here along with husband and 16 year old son - we spent about an hour walking here, only to find that there was no English information provided. There were guided tours going on which looked really interesting - we wouldn't have expected these to be in English,... More

Camp Amersfoort was one of three Nazi concentration camps in Holland. It operated from July of 1941 until April of 1945. Although it was not on a scale like those in Germany or Poland, it was just as deadly a preview of hell for its 35,000 victims. The present attraction includes a modern, nicely organized and informative visitors center, one... More
