Former leader of Polizeiliches Durchgangslager Amersfoort, SS-Schutzhaftlagerführer II Karl Peter Berg and camp guard, Berend Johan Westerveld after their arrest.

Karl Peter Berg arrived in Amersfoort in August 1941 and in January 1943 he was appointed the commandant of the camp. Berg was described as a “predator who derived great pleasure from the agony of others” and had an extremely cruel attitude towards Jewish and Soviet prisoners of war. He personally participated in the executions of 77 Soviet and 200 Jewish prisoners.

In 1948 the camp’s commandant and guards were tried and convicted for their crimes. Karl Peter Berg was sentenced to death, and on 22 November, 1949 he was shot in the Dutch town of Weesperkarspel.

Berend Johan Westerveld joined Nederlandsche SS in 1941. In 1943 he was appointed to Polizeiliches Durchgangslager Amersfoort. He also had notably extremely cruel behavior towards prisoners and had participated in various excecutions. 

In 1948 he was sentenced to death but in 1950 his sentence was replaced with 18 years of imprisonment.
