This tour is one of contrasts and shows two extremely opposite implementations of humans’ minds:
Mauthausen Concentration Camp – the unimaginable cruelty of the Nazis.
The Concentration Camp Mauthausen was part of World War II and cannot and must not be buried in oblivion. It is a synonym for the ineffable destinies of people from different nations and a memorial for what can happen when no one stops destructive absolute rulers and their followers.
Mauthausen Concentration Camp
Our first destination is the Concentration Camp Mauthausen. Established in 1938 it was the first Concentration Camp outside the “Old Reich”, one of the most notorious ones within the “Third Reich” and by 1940 one of the largest ones. Almost 200.000 inmates where kept there, more than 100.000 did not survive. In the beginning it served as a prison camp for common “Incorrigible Law Offenders”. Later it was converted into a labor camp. Mauthausen was labeled as Grade-III-camp which meant that it was one of the toughest ones and mostly used for extermination through labor. Mauthausen had about 50 sub-camps incl. mines, quarries and arms factories. Thus it served the German machinery of war and the extermination of political and ideological enemies until 1945.
