The film "Camp Vught lives on: the third generation" is part of the permanent exposition - If walls could speak - in Barrack 1B. Barrack 1B is the last authentic barrack from Camp Vught (the former concentrationcamp). The exhibition covers four periods: the concentration camp (1943-1944), the evacuation camp for German citizens from the border area (1944-1945) and the internment camp for NSB members, Dutch citizens suspected of collaboration, and imperial Germans (1944-1949). From 1951, part of the former camp was used as the Lunetten compound and it housed former troops from the Royal Netherlands East Indies Army (KNIL in Dutch) and their families from the Moluccas.
The film shows potraits of four people from the third generation: Selma Huffener (granddaughter Jewish prisoner); Bettina Drion (granddaughter NSB-member), Stèphanie Lalihatu (granddaughter KNIL-soldier) and Martin Scheufens (grandson German evacuee).
A film by Ellen van Kempen, in commission by: Camp Vught National Memorial.
