In the area around the village of Blachhammer were several labour camps, with in total of about 50,000 forced laborers.
One of these camps became Blechhammer concentration camp, a satellite of the Auschwitz III Monowitz concentration camp .
The camp had its own crematorium, which still exists just like other concrete remains of the camp.
On 21 January 1945 the inmates were forced to start a death march. About 200 prisoners were immediately murdered and hundreds of others died during the march.
