A Guide to the Permanent Historical Exhibition

Edited by the Gedenkstätte Buchenwald, compiled by Harry Stein

In Buchenwald, not far from the city of Weimar, home of German Classical writers, one of the largest National-Socialist concentration camps existed from 1937-1945. The history of the camp is presented today in an extensive and representative permanent exhibition at the Buchenwald Memorial.

Roughly 1500 documents give witness to the immeasurable suffering incurred by more than a quarter of a million people from almost all nations of Europe in this camp.

The Guide of the Exhibition offers an overview of the history of the National-Socialist Concentration Camp Buchenwald.

Topics include:
Early history and establishment of the camp
The SS guards
Daily life from 1937 until 1942 and from 1942 until 1945
Liberation and a new beginning
