1933 – 1934 Oranienburg concentration camp

Everyday life

The prisoners' daily life consisted of work, exercising and 'sport'. In the beginning the prisoners were put to work constructing the camp, but as of May 1933 the prisoners worked for the town of Oranienburg on the roads, rail and water infrastructure and forestry. Daily life in the camp was full of punishment, harassment and abuse - especially for the prisoners in the 'Jewish company'.

At least 16 prisoners - including the writer and anarchist Erich Mühsam were murdered by the guards.
