Nederlands Exposition in Auschwitz Deportation

Vught concentration camp

The first groups of Jews that were deported to Vught in January 1943 had temporary exemption from transport (Sperre). Initially, the Germans called it a protective custody camp for Dutch political prisoners. However, in February 1943 the name was changed to Judendurchgangslager (Jewish transit camp). In less than seven months, 12,000 Jewish men, women, and children were deported from Vught.

Working at Philips offered protection and better food. The prisoners produced various items, including shaving machines, radios, radio cables, and dyno torches (a torch with a squeezable handle for producing light).
