KZ Gusen I & II Concentration Camps
"Central Complex" , March 15, 1945, 03:00 p.m., 29,000 feet
KZ Gusen I & II were the biggest satellites of the Mauthausen system of camps.
After 1944, with some 25,000 inmates, these Gusen camps
contained double the number of inmates than the Mauthausen central camp.
The 16,000 inmates at KZ Gusen II (left part of the photograph) worked
in the St.Georgen "BERGKRISTALL" underground installations some 3 km west of these camps.
The inmates of KZ Gusen I worked in the stone-quarries, barracks and
tunnels north of the 2 camps.
