Summary
Westerbork, in the north of Holland, was built in 1939 for the internment of German Jewish refugees, but with the Nazi occupation it became the central camp for Jews awaiting deportation to concentration camps (104,000 of Holland's 140,000 Jews passed through there). Describes daily life and the social structure; the behavior of the German commander, Albert Konrad Gemmeker; the role of the chief administrator, the German Jew Kurt Schlesinger, and of the Jewish camp police. also deals with the activities of Friedrich Weinreb, who swindled money out of Jews marked for deportation and was later convicted for collaboration. The author was born in the camp in November 1943; the book's title is derived from the name of the main street which traversed Westerbork. Based on archival research, including diaries, especially by Philip Mechanicus and Etty Hillesum. Refers to a film on Westerbork, made on behalf of Gemmeker.
