Transcript of Buchenwald

Buchenwald Buchenwald was located in Weimar, Germany. Buchenwald was
established in 1937,
and they were set free
on April 11,1945. Buchenwald was build by the prisoners.During
the entire summer of 1937 he SS forced the prisoners to use their "free time" to carry huge stones from the quarry to the camp. Those who had misfortune to carry stones that were to small in the eyes of the SS,were immediatly killed. The official goal
of Buchewald was the
destruction of prisoners
by work. Thousands of prisoners were murdered in Buchenwald by work,torture,beatings,or simply starvation and lack of hygiene. Elie Wiesel had gone to that camp befor. The day that they were set free was
on April 11,1945. There were more
than 56,000. This estimate does
not include 13,000 inmates
transferred to Auschwitz or
other extermination camps. Buchenwald was located in
Weimar,Germany. The camp was built
by the prisoners.
During the summer of 1937 the SS fored the prisoners to use their "free time" to carry huge stones from the quarry to the camp. Testimony of Ludwig Scheinbrunn,
survivor of Buchenwald.
"As of September 21,1939,I was obliged
to carry corpses in Buchenwald. I did that
for 2 and a half years. During the winter of 1939,
they erected a tent camp near the actual crematorium,
where more than 40 prisoners died every day,from cold
and starvation.The prisoners recieved a half-liter of
light soup and one bread for 8 inmates. Blank and Hinkelmannn often threw the food in the mud,so the prisonershad to kneel to get it while Blank and Hinkelmann
beat them with sticks and whips..." Buchenwald The camp was established in 1937. I got all my information
from Buchenwald concentration
