749 people died at the camp in the Second World War. After the war, it served as a dwelling for Dutch collaborators and German evacuees. It also housed Dutch Moluccans in 1951.

The old barrack of the concentration camp is being renovated at the moment. Divisions of the camp were repaired and reopened again in 2002.

The barrack is scheduled to re-open in the next few months at an exhibition in honor of the Moluccan exiles.
