During World War II, around 45,000 prisoners were interned at Camp Amersfoort in the Netherlands. A new museum will open its doors on the former site of this transit and penal camp, 75 years after liberation. The new building will provide insights into the camp’s history, helping to keep the memory of the place and the reality of what happened there alive. By examining the relationship between its history and the traces it has left in the landscape, the story of the camp can be revealed. In this book, the architect, landscape architect, and experience designers offer an inside look at their multidisciplinary approach and reflect on commemoration as a design theme.
