Appellplatz where prisoners lined up for roll call in front of service building

This huge expanse of gravel is the Apellplatz, where the prisoners had to line up to be counted morning and evening. Incoming prisoners entered through the red-roofed gatehouse, then went to the west wing of the service building, shown on the left, where they were registered and issued a striped prison uniform. New museum exhibits in the west wing opened in 2003. In front of the west wing, you can see one of the memorial walls of the International Monument
