Verden

Between January and April 1945, there was a satellite camp of Neuengamme concentration camp in the town of Verden an der Aller. According to a report from 29 March 1945 by Dr. Trzebinski, the SS Garrison Physician at Neuengamme concentration camp, there were 8 male prisoners working for the SS Central Construction Office (SS-Bauleitung) in Verden on 25 March 1945. They were forced to carry out construction work for the “Sachsenhain” SS training school. Very little is known about the prisoners’ living and working conditions. The name of the camp commander and the fate of the prisoners after the camp was evacuated in April 1945 are also not known.
