Back in the secure juvenile care facility on the outskirts of Amsterdam for a small conference about youth care and secure facilities for kids.
Two of the children with whom I lived for ten days in early september in the facility were present as well and they spoke eloquently about their lives in the facility. The kids were mainly positive about this facility, it was better here than in many other, even so-called "open" care facilities. This is above all proof of how awful the conditions are elsewhere.
An it was definitely not the last time I visited this facility.
