What is it about?

Mittelbau-Dora mirrors the history of forced concentration camp labour and the relocation of armaments production to underground sites during World War II. Between 1943 and 1945, more than 60,000 persons from nearly all the countries of Europe were compelled to perform forced labour here for the German armaments industry. After the liberation in April 1945, the camp provided accommodations for freed concentration camp inmates; later it served as a reception camp for German deportees from Czechoslovakia. Today Mittelbau-Dora is a museum of contemporary history and a European commemoration site in one.
