This website describes the civilian internment camps (location, arrival and depar≠ture dates, transports, transfers, references, etc.), but provides no complete rosters for the camps. This site does not offer a search function to locate in which camp(s) a particular person was interned.

I do not possess the necessary means to permit such a search in my own archives. The only source for such a search is via the Netherlands Red Cross:


Het Nederlandse Rode Kruis, Oorlogsnazorg
Leeghwaterplein 27
2521 CV Den Haag, The Netherlands



In compliance with the Privacy Act, personal data can only be provided to very close relatives. It is important that you submit a request disclosing specific details relative to your search:

1. Your personal data

2. Personal data of the person(s) in question

3. Your relationship to the person or persons

4. Your mailing address.

Data provided should include as much information as possible, but no less than sur≠name, first name, middle name(s), date of birth and motherís maiden name.




After the war, most people were evacuated/repatriated to The Netherlands by ship. This website provides a list of ships, with references to known archives and pas≠senger lists.

If the name of the vessel is not known, you can request a search from

1. Het Nederlandse Rode Kruis (see contact info above)

2. Herman van Oosten (

3. Me (

The collection of passenger lists available in the Netherlands is unfortunately not complete.In addition, not every known passenger list is complete. This means that a search does not always yield positive results.
