A visit to Kamp Amersfoort makes an impression and makes you think. How could this happen? Who was the victim, the perpetrator or the bystander? Perhaps the roles overlap? What does this mean today? We live in a free country and have done so for a long time, but what does freedom mean?

The surrounding area of the former Kamp Amersfoort lends itself wonderfully for a leisurely walk along the various monuments and remains of the camp. There are informative signs on the grounds which provide information and an explanation regarding the specifics of the area. These signs offer you the opportunity to wander around on your own and gain knowledge while doing so.
