    Default KL Buchenwald NKVD Special Camp No. 2?

    Does anyone know the exact date that KL Buchenwald was transferred to Soviet administration and became NKVD Special Camp No. 2? It must have been after May 1945 because an American Army Rabbi, Hershel Schacter, held Shavuot service on 18 May 1945 and GIs were still touring the camp on 27 May 1945?

    Can only confirm that it was August. May well need to contact a member of the museum staff for an accurate date.

    Many thanks Carl, have just emailed the museum archive director

    I am assuming there must have been an official hand-over meeting between the US occupation forces and the Soviets and am try to find out when such a meeting might have taken place and if it was photographed.

    You're welcome. I would assume that you are correct, a meeting likely took place and one would expect that it was photographed. Good luck!
