Westerbork Concentration Camp- 2014
What has now been turned into an expansive park featuring 6 kilometer walking path, the remains of Camp Westerbork are eerie at best. Though no exterminations took place here because it was a transit camp, it is believed that Anne Frank and her Father were held here briefly before being moved to another camp.
Near the end of the park was a small collection of bricks held on end, representing each of the people from the Netherlands who had been killed by the nazis. The different lengths representing the ages of the various prisoners.
It was a chilling, eye opening experience to stand on these grounds and realize what had happened in that very spot so many years before.—
