If you don’t want to look at all of them, don’t. Just dont be a prick and complain about it.
Buchenwald, established in July of 1937 and ended in 1945, was one of the largest concentration camps in Germany. It’s located a few miles out of the town of Weimer.
My uncle got a first hand view of the camp. No, he was not a prisoner...he was a guard. Yes, that’s right. My great uncle was SS. Ironic because my grandfather was a Lieutenant in the Polish army.
Enough rambling, here are the pictures I took while at the camp (there’s a lot).
Russian memorial portraying the Nazis’ cruelty
Giant pit where a large amount of corpses were found
The other one
Now to the actual camp
Electric fence, watchtower, etc
Inside one of the cells
View from the inside of the cell block
Rough translation: "Everyone gets what they deserve"
A sign outside of the crematorium (bad quality)
Couldn’t read any of it
Elevator. Room below was used to execute Russian POW’s and the bodies were brought up to be burned
Used to haul the bodies
View from the back
Used as punishment. Manual labor wheee!
The Russians destroyed almost the entire camp after they used it for themselves for 10 years.
These are pictures from the Sterilization Building. They showed nothing of its actual past, but it contained a lot of art from the prisoners.
Collection of shoes taken from new prisoners
Drawing done by one of the inmates
Holding the Star of David
Museum building thingamajigger
Honestly, the inside was pretty boring, but there were a couple things which for photo-worthy
I don’t know why there was a syringe there because Buchenwald was a labor camp, not a death camp. Still interesting though
A shrunken head. They really did this. Shrunken heads were given to SS officers as gifts.
And finally a view from the 2nd floor. This only makes up for about 1/4 of this sections actual size.
I’ll try to answer any questions...unless you’re a cunt and I hate you =). Other than that, rate fair.
