Prisoner of War Camp Stalag VIII F/318 Lamsdorf

This camp was used by the Germans as POW-camp, mainly for Soviet soldiers.

In Lamdorf was one of the biggest camp-complexes of the Germans: Stalag VIII B, Stalag VIII F/318 und Stalag 344. About 400,000 persons were imprisoned here during the Second World War. About 200,000 of them were Soviet-POW's. Of the prisoners, 42,000 died.

Parts of the camp remained or were reconstructed. There is also a large memorial and the camp-cemetery.
