Originally Camp Amersfoort was a military base of the Dutch army. Until August 1941 when it was used by the German occupiers to lock up approximately 47,000 prisoners during the Second World War. Resistance fighters, Arbeitseinsatz evaders, communists, hostages, victims of raids, about 2,500 Jews, 220 American citizens, 120 Jehovah's Witnesses and 100 Soviet prisoners of war were brought to this degrading camp. Hunger, forced labour and ill-treatment were the order of the day. Approximately three quarters of the prisoners were transported to other camps for forced labour, and many never returned.

Since 2004, the memorial centre has been set up. A visit to the museum tells the whole story by means of objects, photos, documents, exhibitions and the monuments and still visible traces on the outside terrain.
