Neuengamme concentration camp

The Neuengamme concentration camp, a German concentration camp, was established in 1938 by the SS near the village of Neuengamme in the Bergedorf district of the City of Hamburg, Germany. It was in Nazi operation from 1938 to 1945. By the end of the war, more than half of its estimated 106,000 prisoners had died. At the end of hostilities, the occupying British Army used it for a time as a detention centre for SS troops. After being operated as two prisons by the Hamburg authorities from 1948 to 2004, and a period of uncertainty, the site now serves as a memorial. It is situated 15 km southeast of the centre of Hamburg in the Vierlande area.
