  • Buchenwald is said to be the most notorious concentration camp located in East Germany.


  • There were more than 10,000 prisoners sent to the Buchenwald concentration camp.

  • By the end of February of 1945, the number of prisoners increased to 112,000.  This number was most likely achieved because the camp would sometimes take in 6,000 prisoners a day. 

  • Prisoners were held in the northern section of the camp, known as the "main camp," while SS guards and camp administration stayed in the southern section.
