Concentration Mittelbau-Dora

Prisoners here worked under inhuman conditions on the construction of tunnels for the underground manufacture of V-2 rockets. The camp was evacuated on 1 April 1945. During the liberation by American troops only a few prisoners were found. Of the +/- 60.000 prisoners +/- 20.000 were killed. Nowadays a museum and memorial site can be found at this location.

The inmates of Mittelbau-Dora had to line up for roll call on muster grounds.

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