Neuengamme Concentration Camp Liberated by British Army

Neuengamme Crematorium Ovens

The British Army liberates the Neuengamme concentration camp near Hamburg. Nearly half of the 106,000 prisoners incarcerated here have died.

Neuengamme was organized for the purpose of "extermination through labor" — forcing prisoners to engage in heavy labor while not providing them with enough food or other resources to survive. During the final days of the war when the Nazis try to evacuate the camp and hide evidence of what happened, over 17,000 die.
