From May 5th (Dutch Liberation Day), the province of Drenthe will be part of the international Liberation Route, which spans across nine European countries to connect historical World War II sites.
As part of the Liberation Route Europe, five “listening stones” will be placed at sites in Drenthe that played a key role during the war. The stones will feature a QR code: when visitors scan them with their smartphones, they will receive information about the site through a radio play-like audio story, based on the experiences of eyewitnesses
The first of these listening stones will be revealed on the evening of 5 May at the Memorial Centre of Camp Westerbork. In the following days, stones will also be unveiled in the villages of Spier, Gasselte, Hooghalen and in the village centre of Westerbork.
