    WACHTURM (watchtower):

    Several of the original stone watchtower structures remain, located near the Krematoria facility (1), on the hillside behind the former tool shop site (2), and adjoined to the chapel near the location of the former isolation blocks (3).

    1. Southeastern section of the camp: A Wachturm stands over the Krematoria site.

    2. Northern section: Another watchtower, located on the hillside behind the former tool shop site.

    3. Finally, the third original guard tower stands near the site of the former isolation blocks, adjoined to the chapel which was constructed using stone from some of the dismantled watchtowers.

    THE RAMP:

    When the camp was liberated, US forces found an unusual opening to a tunnel. Upon further inspection, they realised that they had discovered the method of transportation used for moving the corpses down to the Krematorium facility from the Häftlingslager (Prisoner's Camp). This ramp, nowadays covered with grass, originally had a pair of tracks for a small cart to run along, transferring the bodies from a location near the isolation blocks, down to the Krematorium below. A large pile of shoes, taken from the deceased prisoners were also found next to the ramp when the camp was finally abandoned by the SS.

    1. Tunnel entrance.

    2. The ramp as seen from below. Note the bricked-up exit, altered post war.

    THE RAMP AND ORIGINAL GATEPOSTS:

    A side on view of the ramp, nearby Wachturm (watchtower) and tunnel entrance (beneath the fenced section, upper right of picture). To the foot of the attachment, a memorial marker can be seen. This is one of the commemorative stones laid to mark the Jewish victims at Flossenbürg, and was placed at the spot were the large pile of former inmates' shoes was found during the liberation of the KL.

    Just visible in the lower left hand corner of the photograph, are the original gateposts. They were relocated post war when a large redevelopment project saw the site covered with numerous factory and enterprise structures, many of which hid or covered former camp structures. For many years, historians referred to Flossenbürg as "The Forgotten Camp", a name that was used due to the lack of visitors and the condition of the site. Despite the fact that KL-Flossenbürg was actually the fourth largest Konzentrationslager within Nazi Germany, it remained largely unknown. It wasn't until the 1990's that major redevelopment was undertaken.

    DEST:

    As with other Konzentrationslagers within the system, such as KL-Gross-Rosen and KL-Natzweiler,KL-Flossenbürg was directly connected to a stone quarry, exploited by the DEST concern (Deutsche Erd-und Steinwerke GmbH / German Earth and Stone Works Company). At Flossenbürg, the DEST administration buildings were located near to the main camp, just a short walk from the Kommandantur.

    1-4. Main premises of the DEST management at Flossenbürg.
