Today, Wednesday, 5 July 2017, I made a walk around the site of former Westerbork camp, not far from us. Had not been there for a while and now it has changed. The events in this loaded place are further emphasized by placing a train wagon similar to the ones with which the Jews were deported to the concentration camps. There are large pictures on the site that show the daily life in the camp. Interrupting are the photos of people driven by the trains. A replica of a real-size barrack with original elements, at the place where Anne Frank and her sister Margot took apart the batteries. And finally, I walked to the former apple place where the pictures of David died among the stones with Davidsster again emphasizing the loss again. It was impressive to walk there. With the clear realization that this might never happen again. With the exposure of the pictures, I tried to show the drama of this place.
The only original leftover of Westerbork camp is the home of that bad German Nazi Albert Gemmeker, who has absolutely known that the trains with Jews left for to the destruction camps. It has been believed that this house must be kept, despite the bad state, as a reminder. A glass bar has been placed over it. Nice? I don't think so.
Everywhere in the former campsite around the former camp house of the camp commander there are information panels with information about the bad guys.
Herinnering aan de brieven die uit de trein werden gegooid als laatste teken van leven.
After almost half a century as a barn at Zelhem, barak 57 has been reinstated. This barrack was donated to  the owner of the Kamp Westerbork Memorial Center in 2010. At the time of rebuilding in Zelhem, the entire barracks was not used and their original sizes were adapted to the new use. The disassembly therefore did not provide a complete barrack but parts of the barrack. Its placement, with new construction and foundations, is a test. This way, it must be made clear how barracks can get a good place in the historic place of Westerbork camp.
