Well presented, gives a good idea of the camps the Nazis run. No original barracks shown, but their footprints marked. A museum shows what the place had and did. It was mostly a work camp, free slave labor for a brick factory and a weapons...More

It's a bit of a trek from Hamburg but well worth it. This is an excellent and very sympathetic memorial to the prisoners who 'resided' here. Very educational and well thought out. It's free to visit and just a couple of euros for the audio...More
