Description
Buchenwald concentration camp (Konzentrationslager (KZ) Buchenwald) was a German Nazi concentration camp established on the Ettersberg near Weimar, Germany, in July 1937, one of the first and the largest of the concentration camps on German soil. Camp prisoners from all over Europe and Russia—Jews, non-Jewish Poles and Slovenes, religious and political prisoners, Roma and Sinti, Jehovah's Witnesses, criminals, homosexuals, and prisoners of war— worked primarily as forced labor in local armament factories. From 1945 to 1950 conditions became even more horrific as the camp was used by the Soviet occupation authorities as an internment camp, known as NKVD special camp number 2 [source - Wikipedia] #Buchenwald #Deutschland #Germany #Holocaust #Nazi_concentration_camp #World_War #WWII
