Description

Just 50kms out of Strasbourg, deep in the mountains at 800 meters stands the only concentration camp established by the Nazis on French soil: Natzweiler-Struthof. The camp provided Strasbourg University with inmates for use in often lethal pseudo-medical experiments involving chemical warfare agents and infectious diseases. Most deaths, however, were due to the harsh living and working conditions. Forced labour primarily took place in a nearby red-granite quarry, which supplied building materials for Hitler's ambitious architectural projects.


Today, visitors can see the remains of the camp, whose barracks – one housing and a museum – are still surrounded by guard towers and two rows of barbed wire. The crematorium ovens, the autopsy room and the gas chamber, an ordinary-looking building, bear grim witness to the atrocities committed here.


Depart from Strasbourg for the Bruche Valley and on arrival at the camp, visit the European Center of Deportees, which houses an important collection of pictures and displays from many concentration camps across Europe. Then follow your guide for a comprehensive tour of the camp itself and the different barracks, the gas chamber, the prison, experiments room, and the crematorium.
