NOS news broadcast about this podcast
iO and National Monument Kamp Amersfoort have made an eight-part podcast: De Verdwenen SS'er. A gripping audio story that already has over 1.2 million downloads.
“As makers, our starting point was the same as always: we wanted to tell a strong, exciting story. A podcast that combines entertainment and education. With an overwhelming number of people listening, we have succeeded in introducing a wider audience to National Monument Camp Amersfoort.”
Jordy Hubers, Podcast Creative iO
The collaboration in numbers
“In the end, we linked a face and a story to a war criminal who was unknown before in the Netherlands — and filled some big gaps in our shared history and knowledge. This way, we have not only strengthened the profile of our museum and increased involvement and visitor numbers, but I also think - although you have to be careful with statements like this - that ‘De Verdwenen SS'er’ is one of the best branded podcasts of the moment.”
Floris van Dijk, Head of Research National Museum Kamp Amersfoort
