Kamp Amersfoort was a nazi concentration camp and originally a transit camp, but also served as a penal camp and labor camp. In the early days there were many Jewish prisoners, but Kamp Amersfoort was also used to detain political prisoners, professional criminals, Jehovah's witnesses and homophiles. Hundreds of people died in the camp and 20,200 prisoners were transported from Amersfoort to camps in Germany.
