Natzweiler-Struthof Camp

The photo above shows a view of the former camp, looking north toward the mountain in the background. On the left is the camp prison and on the right is the crematorium. In the foreground is a display of objects used in the camp, including a gallows in the center.

The photo below shows the terraces where the barracks formerly stood. Each of the barrack locations now has a white block with the name of one of the former Nazi concentration camps, such as Auschwitz, Bergen-Belsen and Neuengamme, which are the names on the blocks closest to the entrance. On the extreme left is shown a bit of the barbed wire fence which surrounded the camp.

Pictured below are two of the guard towers in the former camp and the stone steps in front of the former kitchen.

The photo directly above shows a view of the former camp, looking south, from near the bottom of the slope. There are granite steps up to each terrace where the barracks formerly stood. Visitors are not encouraged to walk through the camp because these steps are steep and have no handrails. On the extreme left, you can see the steep road that visitors must take to the crematorium at the bottom of the slope. In the background is the monument called the Memorial to Deportation. The building on the left is the former kitchen and the building on the right is barrack block number one.
