A new museum in which the history of that place becomes palpable: the oppression, the injustice, and the fear. Tinker imagineers was responsible for the concept and exhibition design of Kamp Amersfoort, a prison and transit camp during the Second World War. The redesigned outside area, the architecture, and the exhibition illustrate what went on in there. The history of Kamp Amersfoort and the current site show many contradictions. Right and wrong, inside and out, life and death, remembering and forgetting. These contrasts formed the starting point for the design principles, and they have been incorporated into the architecture, the landscape, and the exhibition space. Dark and light, coarse and fine, broken and whole, cold and warm, old and new. In this meaningful place you will also be confronted with your own prejudices and choices. Only then will you realise how difficult it is to do the right thing.
