Nederlands Exposition in Auschwitz Deportation

Other camps

Mauthausen

In 1941, a razzia took place in Amsterdam as retribution for riots in the Jewish quarter.
More than 400 Jewish men were arrested and deported to Mauthausen in Austria via Schoorl in the Netherlands and Buchenwald in Germany. In September that same year, more than 200 Jews were arrested in Twente as retribution for cutting cables. They were also deported to Mauthausen. Soon after their disappearance, the families in Amsterdam and Twente received death notices. None of the people deported ever returned. Mauthausen - which the Dutch nicknamed 'Moordhuizen' (Death Houses) already during the war - was a concentration camp where thousands of people were worked to death in the stone quarry. Several Dutch professional officers and secret agents were executed in Mauthausen. Towards the end of the war hundreds of Dutch people from other camps were taken to Mauthausen.
