Today, 12th April 2013, marks the 68th anniversary of the liberation of Westerbork. The camp was liberated by members of the Canadian 2nd Infantry. KL-Westerbork, a Durchgangslager (transit camp), was used to assemble and transfer well over 100,000 people, mostly of Jewish origin, to other Konzentrationslagers such as Auschwitz, Sobibor, Bergen-Belsen and Theresienstadt. Most of these inmates later died. Below, two images show commemorative markers at the site, including some of the 102,000 memorial stones laid to remember each victim who passed through the camp and failed to survive the war.
