Questions about persecution victims

Camp Westerbork is the story of the murder of 102,000 times one human being: a grandfather, a grandmother, a father, a mother, an uncle, an aunt, a brother, a sister, a son, a daughter, a nephew, a niece, a friend, a neighbour, a classmate... And it is the story of 5,000 survivors. It's the story of always a unique human being, with a name, a face, a family. Stories that have remained as memories, but also in the form of photos and letters.

Memorial Centre Camp Westerbork captures all those stories in the database of A Name and a Face. Data from various archives are linked to this database in order to get as complete a picture as possible of the fate of the victims. On the basis of these data, we can provide more and more answers to questions about when someone was staying in Camp Westerbork and when he or she was deported to the East.

You can also contribute to A Name and a Face. We would like to receive your photos and stories. The database of A Name and a Face cannot be consulted on the internet. But if you have any questions, you can always contact us using the form below.
