…Morning light through the forest, Westerbork Camp, Assen…..

Westerbork was used as a transit camp by the Nazis during the occupation of the Netherlands. Over 100,000 Jews and 245 Sinti and Roma were sent from Westerbork Camp to the death camps in Auschwitz and Sobibor. Only 5,000 returned after the war.
