Kamp Westerbork Kamp Westerbork

Transit Camp to Eternity: the Liberation Story

by Law, Cecil E.

The liberation of Kamp Westerbork in the history of the South Saskatchewan Regiment of Canada continues to be the event that captures the reason why the regiment served abroad in WWII: for freedom and hope for a new life. Historian Cecil E. Law, who served as an officer with the Regiment, revisits the events he witnessed in April 1945. He also traced surviving prisoners freed by his army unit. Kamp Westerbork was used by the Nazis as the staging area from where over 100,000 Dutch Jews were sent to death camps.
