The camp is organized similarly to Vught, but more bleak and gray. Corrie cannot see the surrounding woods over the concrete walls and electric fences. When guards herd the women into a tented area, Corrie and Betsie discover lice in the straw.

Their permanent barracks are filthy, crowded and flea-ridden. There are no beds, only platforms with dusty straw and eight women where four should sleep. This barracks, designed for four hundred women, now holds fourteen hundred. In that crowded space, arguments erupt constantly, causing Betsie and Corrie to pray for peace in the barracks.
