Concentration Camp Museum

Local nameNationaal Monument Kamp Vught
LocationVught, Netherlands

Herzogenbusch concentration camp was a Nazi concentration camp located in Vught near the town of 's-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands. Herzogenbusch was, with Natzweiler-Struthof in occupied France, the only concentration camp run directly by the SS in western Europe outside Germany. The camp was first used in 1943 and held 31,000 prisoners. 749 prisoners died in the camp, and the others were transferred to other camps shortly before the camp was liberated by the Allied Forces in 1944. After the war the camp was used as a prison for Germans and Dutch collaborators. Today there is a visitors' centre with exhibitions and a national monument "Nationaal Monument Kamp Vught" remembering the camp and its victims. The camp is now a museum.
