Abstract:

Presents photographs of the camp and the underground tunnels as they look today. Pp. 115-130 trace the history of the camp, where slave laborers from many nations, among them many Jews, manufactured V-2 rockets under subhuman conditions: in airless underground halls, with little food or sanitation, and brutal treatment by SS guards and kapos. Mortality was high - and even higher among the Jews; many of the surviving prisoners died on the death march when the camp was evacuated with the approach of the Soviet army.
