Very rare printed map of the Sachsenhausen concentration camp, 22" x 16 1/2", titled at top: "Plan of the Area of the SS Troops and Concentration Camp Sachsenhausen". The map is an area view of the triangle-shaped camp showing all structures, administration buildings, assembly areas, guards' barracks, towers, industrial area, etc. The legend lists locations shown on the map including: "Disinfection Barracks...Punishment Detail...Exile Buildings...Blocks 38 and 39 [Jewish barracks]...Workshop...", etc. Shows original folds with a 1" tear at the bottom left edge, with pinholes to the corners and mounted to a backing sheet, else very good. Clearly judging by the map references, this plan would have been of use only to SS guards and officers. Sachsenhausen was used primarily for political prisoners from 1936 to the end of the war. 30,000 inmates died there from exhaustion, disease, malnutrition, pneumonia, etc. due to the poor living conditions. Many were executed or died as the result of brutal medical experimentation the results of which were applied to develop techniques for mass extermination.
SACHSENHAUSEN CONTEMPORARY PRINTED CAMP PLAN, LIKELY USED ON SITE BY SS PERSONNEL
