Reconstruction of wall, barbed-wire fence, and moat which originally surrounded the camp

This is the view of the camp that you see in front of you, as you enter the Memorial site. The reconstructed ditch only extends part of the way down the wall. In front of the reconstructed wall is a path where guards could patrol and in front of the wall, an electrically charged, barbed-wire fence strung between concrete posts. In front of the fence is a roll of barbed wire and then a concrete-lined ditch. In front of the ditch is a strip of grass. Prisoners who ventured onto the grass strip were shot by the guard without warning.
