Book cover

In the spring of 1934, the National Socialists made all concentrations camps subject to a newly created office of the SS: the "Inspectorate of Concentration Camps" (IKL). On behalf of the Reichsführer SS Heinrich Himmler, the IKL managed 32 main camps with over 1000 satellite camps. From 1938 to the end of the war, the IKL resided in a prestigious house built by prisoners on the edge of Sachsenhausen Cencentration Camp in Oranienburg. Today, it is the most important building preserved from that era that bears witness to the masterminds behind the National Socialist terror. About 100 SS men here decided on immates' food, clothing and housing, on transports to other camps and death marches, on punishments and executions, forced labour, medical experiments and mass murder.
