Between 1942 and 1945, from 107 000 Netherlands Jews, Sinti and Roma in the Netherlands transported to concentration and extermination camps. Most people were deported to Auschwitz and Sobibor. From Westerbork to Sobibor left there 34 313 people, only 18 of them returned. Three of them are still alive.

The exhibition Sobibor - The memory of the soil shows the importance of archaeological research can be at a historic place like Sobibor in Poland. After the rebellion of the prisoners on October 14, 1943, the SS decided this camp focused on destroying the ground to make the same: to be obliterated all traces of the murder of 160,000 Jews certainly. Thanks to the memories of survivors and a single document, there was knowledge about Sobibor, but always there remained questions and uncertainties. Thanks to research in the archaeological record, particularly in recent years, has become much more well known and there are proofs about the deadly operation of this terrible place.
