Poland - National Stutthof Museum & Concentration Camp - World War II
The
National Stutthof Museum & Concentration Camp is located east of Gdansk. Stutthof served mainly for extermination of the most aware and patriotic Poles, mainly from the educated circles from Danzig and Pomorze Region. In 1942 Stutthof became an international camp - and in June 1944 it became part of the project "Endlösung" (the final Nazistic solution of "the Jewish problem"). For the rest of World War II it thereby became a camp of mass-extermination.
