The central camp of the KZ Mauthausen is located some 3 km east of the KZ Gusen I & II.

Today it is a museum to commemorate the 120,000 victims that died in a system of 49 different camps.

The largest group of victims (some 40,000 out of them) died at the bigger Gusen camps some kilometers away.

for the production of KZ Gusen II aircraft-parts, too.
