This camp was supervised by 800 German S.S. troops and was opened in 1939. According to records found in the camp, 54,890 men and over 10,000 women were held prisoner here. In the 14 month period preceding 20th April, 1945, 14,000 inmates died from exhaustion, undernourishment, mistreatment, and various diseases. The prisoners worked in stone quarries and a nearby Messerschmidt Airplane Factory. On April 20th, 1945, 15,000 inmates, including children and elderly people were marched away. Those that could not keep up with the march were killed by the wayside. About 2,000 were left when U.S. troops arrived at the camp. Among those reported to have been in the camp were Kurt Von Schuschnig, former Chancellor of Austria, Leopold, King of the Belgians, Prince Albrecht of Austria, and Hjalmar Schacht, Reich Minister of Finances.
