TRANSPORT FROM RAILWAY STATION ‘STAATSSPOOR’ (TODAY THE ‘CENTRAAL STATION’)
August 18th 1942 4000 Jews from Den Haag had to report at the railway station Staatsspoor (now Den Haag Centraal) to be deported. They were the first of the approximately 14.000 Jews from Den Haag, who by way of the Westerbork transit camp would finally end up in the concentration camps in the East. Because not many Jews obeyed this order, the (Dutch!) police from Den Haag went to fetch them forcibly. The deportation trains departed at night from the Staatsspoor station in order not to attract attention.
