KZ Sachsenburg / Sachsenburg Concentration Camp
(Germany - Sachsen - Sachsenburg)
KZ Saschenburg was established in an abandoned four-story textile during the period of 1933 to 1937.
Sachsenburg was the first concentration camp in which SS used coloured triangles sewn onto clothing, as well as armbands, to identify categories of prisoners. The camp held approximately 2.000 opposer's of the Nazi regime. Incomplete documents, found at the civil registry of Sachsenburg in 1945, revealed that eleven prisoners were killed in this camp.
