Abstract:

Describes the functioning of the Stutthof concentration camp, founded in September 1939. Up to the end of 1941 it was a camp for Polish intelligentsia and those Jews who were not killed on the spot by the Einsatzgruppen in Pomerania at the beginning of the war. During this period, 283 Jews had been in the camp. 300 Jews were brought to Stutthof after the liquidation of the Białystok ghetto in November 1943. In 1943-44, Russian Jewish POWs were brought there and the camp was enlarged. In June-December 1944 about 49,000 Jews were brought to the camp because of the retreat from the eastern front. The Nazis began evacuation from other camps in 1945, and ca. 23,000 Jews were transported from Auschwitz to Stutthof. Describes the "death march" from Stutthof, which began on January 25, during which thousands of Jews died or were shot. Includes details on the situation of Jewish prisoners, who were treated with extreme cruelty. Stutthof was also a transit camp for many prisoners transferred to labor camps in Germany. Evaluates that due to various forms of extermination and the extreme conditions during the evacuation, losses among Jewish prisoners amounted to ca. 28,000.
