Sign erected in 1987 at section of preserved railroad track near old SS camp

The railroad spur line that ran from the train station to the SS camp was removed in 1985, but a section of the track was preserved as a memorial. The sign says that tens of thousands of prisoners were transported to the concentration camp on this railroad line between 1933 and 1945. Most of the prisoners had to walk 3 kilometers from the station to the camp along Friedenstrasse. The 45th Thunderbird division soldiers entered the camp complex through a railroad gate near here.
