About Germany, Flossenbürg Concentration Camp Records, 1938-1945
This database consists of 88,337 names of prisoners interned in the Flossenbürg Concentration Camp. The list was compiled in the 1950's to use as evidence against camp administators and guards being put on trial for war crimes.
The Flossenbürg Concentration Camp was established in Bavaria in May 1938. During its existence, approximately 100,000 prisoners arrived in Flossenbürg the majority of whom perished. Jews from Hungary, Czechoslovakia, and Poland arrived from the east in late 1944 and early 1945. In April 1945, as United States military forces approached the area, over 22,000 prisoners were forced on what often became death marches from the camp.
This prisoner name list was developed in the mid-1950s as part of evidence in a war crimes trial against administrators and guards at Flossenbürg. It is part of a broader collection available at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) [RG 30.005M], which describes the camp and its operations.
