The Nazi German Camp Stutthof
The first Nazi German concentration camp outside the German borders was established in 1939 only 34 km from Gdansk on the area of a small seaside village of Sztutowo. Originally, the camp was mainly designated for non-Jews Poles who were being forced to backbreaking work. In 1942, this place became a regular concentration camp and it was enlarged. New barracks, a gas chamber and a crematory were included to the extermination zone. The number of killed people is estimated at 85,000. The Stutthof camp was the last liberated camp. It was freed on May 9, 1945 by Soviet army.
Today, on the area of the former concentration camp there is located a museum which gives a possibility of getting to know a terrifying facts from the period of WWII and which commemorates victims of genocide which took place 80 years ago.
The Stutthof Museum makes barracks of the new and old camp, the main commandant's house, the gas chambers, the crematoria and the memorial to Nazi victims available to visitors. Permanent exhibitions are completed with documentary films about camp's history and the period of Nazi occupation on Polish territories.
