In the upper room of the donjon of Brederode Castle, the exhibition ‘ Torture Instruments ‘ is shown. A friendly re-enactment group, The Knights of Camelot Foundation, has put this special collection of (Medieval) torture tools on loan.
Although they used to be convinced that torture revealed the truth, we now know that torture doesn’t work! Chances are that people who are tortured will confess something they have not done to get rid of the pain.
This exhibition hopes to provide more insight into the horror of torture and to increase the awareness that still many people are being tortured in the world today.
We advise parents to visit this exhibition only with children over 8 years old.
