Full description
Meet your guide and driver at a central meeting point in Amsterdam. Board a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan which will take you to the first stop on the tour, the city of 's-Hertogenbosch which is also known as Den Bosch. Take a guided walking tour of the city where you’ll visit several locations related to either the occupation or liberation of The Netherlands during World War II. Hear the stories of the liberation of the city from soldiers who witnessed this tumultuous period of Dutch history. Browse photographs, maps, and visible traces of that period to get an insight into the occupation of The Netherlands.

After some free time for lunch, drive to the Camp Vught National Memorial. Discover the history of the only official SS concentration camp in Western Europe. Visit the memorial and museum located in the forest of Vught, spread across several buildings and outdoor areas. See the reconstructed watchtowers and the barracks which was rebuilt at half its original size. 

Visit the Children’s Memorial which lists the names and ages of the 1,269 Jewish children who were deported from this site in June 1943. Make your way to the nearby execution area located in the woods. See the memorial which displays the names of the 329 prisoners who were executed at this site.
