Nazis Open Sachsenburg Concentration Camp

The Nazis open a concentration camp in Sachsenburg on the site of an abandoned textile mill near Chemnitz.

This is one of Germany's first concentration camps, and it is designed as a place for "protective custody" for dissidents.

Sachsenburg is the first Nazi concentration camp to have colored triangles sewn onto clothing and not armbands to separate different categories of prisoners.
