Kamp Schoorl

kamp schoorl monumentLittle bit awkward to have a holiday at the same spot of the first concentration camp in the Netherlands, Kamp Schoorl.

' Wiki: The camp was built in 1939 as a Dutch army camp. Among the prisoners were also people from England, Belgium and France.After a few months the French and the Belgian were released. The English prisoners were transferred to a German camp Gleiwitz in September 1940. For about 1,900 people was the camp their first camp before being transferred to other camps. More than 1,000 of them never returned, mainly Jews and political prisoners.' http://www.kamp-schoorl.nl
