The Flossenbürg concentration camp opens in Bavaria, near the border Czechoslovakia. Between now and its liberation by Allied soldiers in 1945, the Flossenbürg concentration camp will see around 96,000 inmates, about 30,000 of whom are murdered here.

At first, the Flossenbürg concentration camp houses "antisocial" and "criminal" inmates who are forced to do heavy labor in a nearby quarry owned by the SS.
