Description:
Stalg XI-C Bergen-Belsen, initially called Stalag 311, was a German Army prisoner-of-war camp located near the town of Bergen in Lower Saxony.

Timeline

  • May 1940: The camp was built to house Belgian and French enlisted men captured in the Battle of France; initial count: 600.
  • July 1941: About 20,000 Soviet prisoners captured during Operation Barbarossa arrived. They were housed in the open while huts were being built. By the spring of 1942 an estimated 18,000 had died of hunger and disease, mainly typhus fever.
  • April 1943: Part of the camp is turned into a hospital for POWs. The remainder of the camp is separated and taken over by the SS to house Jews intended for shipment overseas in exchange for German civilians.
  • Late 1943: The POW camp is closed and the entire facility becomes Bergen-Belsen concentration camp
