Travel Tips for Vught

It Could Have Been Anywhere

by 36waterfalls

Inside the mainbuilding of Camp Vught I found this poem that says it all, even still today!

HAD THEY NOT BEEN HERE
THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN SOMEWHERE ELSE
PLENTY OF SPACES UNDER THE SKY

BUT IT WAS HERE. AND STILL.

by Huub Oosterhuis

The Poem On The Gate Of The Vandalised Monument

by 36waterfalls

"The Fussiade - The Execution Area"

In 1995/1996 the plates with names of the executioned on the Fussiade were smeared with tar. They have been replaced since, and the original ones can be seen in Camp Vught's exibition hall. The offender has never been caught.

Someone got really upset about this and stuck a piece of paper with a poem written on it on the gate of the execution area. This original paper version can also been seen in the main exhibition hall.
The gate of the Fussiade now has a plate (see main picture) with the poem on it. It reads:

COULD YOU SMEAR TAR
ON STONE, NAMES, HISTORY?
FOOLISH BUNGLER, SUCH NAMES
ARE IMPOSSIBLE TO ERASE!
THEY ARE ENGRAVED IN NUMEROUS
HUMAN SOULS. UNASSAILABLE
FOR YOUR SICK HATRED
THEY ARE WRITTEN IN FIRE
IN THE SKY. THEIR LIGHT
TO YOU UNBEARABLE

YOU HAVE NOT REACHED ANYTHING
'TARLING'
MOST OF ALL YOU JUST
SMEARED YOUR OWN NAME
-NOT THEIRS:
THEY SMILE AT YOUR RAGE,
BATHING IN LIGHT
SWAYING ON GOD'S BREATH
AND SINGING SOFT AND GENTLY
FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO HEAR:

PEACE
