You are probably referring to Graeben which was a sub-camp of the
Gross-Rosen concentration camp.  According to the Catalogue of the
International Tracing Service, Graeben started as a forced labor camp
for Jews in 1942.  It was transformed into a sub-camp of Gross-Rosen
in February, 1944.  It housed 500 female prisoners working in a flax
mill.  It was closed and inmates transferred to Bergen-Belsen at the
end of 1944.
