The camp was demolished in the 1970’s, and the site now houses Herinneringscentrum Kamp Westerbork (Remembrance Center of Camp Westerbork), which has a museum and has several poignant memorials dedicated to the victims.
The National Westerbork Memorial is located where the railroad from to the camp terminated. Designed by former Westerbork inmate Ralph Prins, it consists of a piece of railroad track, with its rails twisted and pointed up intending to express despair. There are 93 tracks attached to the rails, representing the number of trains that left Westerbork to the concentration camps.
The 102,000 Stones represent the 102,00 persons deported through Westerbork and executed
in the concentration camps. The stones with Stars of David represent the Jewish victims, the flames represent the Sinti and Roma, and resistance fighters are represented with the plain stones.
Herinneringscentrum Kamp Westerbork is open Monday to Friday 10:00am – 5:00pm, and Saturday and Sunday 11:00am to 5:00pm. Visit the Kamp Westerbork website for more information.
