Description

After a 70-90 minutes drive from Amsterdam, your first destination will be the city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch During the guided walking tour you’ll visit several places related to either the occupation or liberation. You will hear the stories of the people who experienced it, as well as the stories of soldiers participating in the liberation of the city. Backed up with photographs, maps, and visible traces of that period, you will gain an exclusive insight into what life was like in the 1940-1945 era.


After some free time for lunch, you’ll drive to the Camp Vught National Memorial, during World War two was also called Konzentrationslager Herzogenbusch. Camp Vught holds a special place in the Dutch history of the Second World War. It was the only official SS concentration camp in occupied Northwest Europe. The memorial and museum is located in a forest in Vught and is spread out over several buildings and outdoor areas.


The watchtowers, which were built a hundred meters apart, have been reconstructed. The barrack is rebuilt at half the original size and shows how the prisoners lived. The Children’s Memorial lists the names and ages of the 1,269 Jewish children who were deported in June 1943. There is also a crematorium, where the bodies of prisoners who died or were executed at the camp were burned. We drive to the Execution Area which is located nearby in the woods. A memorial has been erected here that displays the names of the 329 prisoners who were executed at this site. Late afternoon we will drive back to Amsterdam
