Museum Camp Ladelund

Camp Ladelund, a satellite camp of Neuengamme concentration, existed from 1 November to 16 December 1944. There were more than 2000 inmates in the campt, who had to work at the Friesenwall, a defense-line. In the short time the camp existed, 301 inmates died. Among them were 111 men from the Dutch village Putten, who were deported a month earlier as a reprisal measurement.

Since 1989, there is a small museum next to the cemetery which is dedicated to the history of the camp.

For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
