Concentration Camp Neuengamme; Labor Camp Drütte

Neuengamme, the large concentration camp near Hamburg, opened December 13, 1938, as a sub-camp of Sachsenhausen, and it became independent on June 4, 1940. It was liberated by British armed forces on April 29, 1945. Drütte, near Brunswick, was administered by the Neuengamme commandant, providing slave laborers for a Reichswerke Hermann Göring munitions factory.
