    Keep up the great work Carl....bringing to the forefront,, some of the sub-camps identities lost to time. It is a pleasure to see a door opened that remained closed since the war. These images need to be seen to learn about and bring a closure to some who thought they were forgotten,or eclipsed by the larger notable camps. History has way of making a dormant seed grow,, to be brought out by the right circumstances and those who study it. Looking forward to seeing "Old Doors of history".. reopened ! Great thread!! Regards Larry

    An image of the Czech writer Ondřej Sekora, a former prisoner at Hagibor. He was incarcerated due to his reluctance to divorce his Jewish wife, as mentioned earlier in the thread.

    This weekend, I am working on my piece for the USHMM (United States Holocaust Memorial Museum) concerning the Hagibor site, which will be included in a future volume of the museum's twenty year Encyclopedia of Camps and Ghettos, 1933-1945 work - see links below:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/03/su...king.html?_r=0

    Addressing my notes, I thought that for the purpose of this thread, the name itself should be explained...

    הגיבור - hagibor, (hero) - the name was chosen long before the Nazi occupation, due to the site being used as a sports and recreation area for Jewish youth.

    Also of note, the date...the camp operated until 5th May 1945 - one of the last to close, and an anniversary just marked by 71 years last week.

    Evening Carl, good to see that you have managed to get some images of the camp. As I recall when we were there you advised us not to take photographs as the local security were shall we say "obstructive" towards people who took an interest in the site! Has the mood eased in that respect at Hagibor or are the "eye's" still watching? Leon.
