Camp Of Hope And Despair - Witness of Westerbork
Westerbork in Eastern Hollland was the last stop on Dutch soil for more than 100,000 Dutch Jews, before being deported to the concentration camps. In spite of the air of impending doom, Jewish classes, celebrations, religious services and weddings continued on a regular basis. Through eyewitness accounts of survivors, as well as remarkable photographs and films, one comes to understand the overall picture of daily life in Westerbork. (General audiences). Color. (70 min)
