Join us for a half day tour to the World War II memorial site Camp Vught.
Herzogenbusch concentration camp (Dutch: Kamp Vught) was a Nazi concentration camp located in Vught near the city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands. The camp was first used in 1943 and held 31,000 Jewish and political prisoners.
On this small group tour, we will visit the remainders of the concentration camp with its reconstructed watchtowers, barracks, crematorium and children’s memorial. This impressive memorial, which is centrally located on the campgrounds, lists the names and ages of the 1,269 Jewish children who were deported in June 1943. After a visit to the memorial center and museum, there will be time to walk to the execution area, located in the surrounding woods. A memorial has been erected here that displays the names of the prisoners who were executed at this site.
During this visit, there will be time for discovery, remembrance, commemoration and reflection. An audio tour is included. Our tour guide will stay with the group throughout the visit and will be able to answer your questions. A boxed lunch can be purchased with this tour.
