Stutthof Tour

From € 95,00

The German concentration camp Stutthof  - was in operation from September 2nd, 1939 to May 9th, 1945. Over 110,000 prisoners passed through it, of whom about 65,000 were killed. The most numerous national groups were Jews and Poles. Since 1942, citizens of Denmark, Norway, Finland, and even from the US (shot down pilots) were directed to Stutthof. 

After the failed attempt on Hitler in 1944, the families of the assassins were placed here.

Stutthof.

Since 1944, prisoners from Norway were brought to the Stutthof camp - including, among others, 265 policemen who refused to cooperate with the pro-Nazi government of Quisling, as well as 90 Finnish seamen interned in the port of Gdańsk. The Finnish government broke off official cooperation with the Third Reich on September 3rd, 1944, but the ships arrived at the port a week earlier.

Nobody remembered sailors. The Germans offered the Finns 2 solutions: service in the German army or internment in Stutthof. 

Despite much better living conditions than other prisoners, after a few months of starvation, 5 sailors decided to join the German army. 

The return of 85 Finnish sailors to their home in 1945 did not mean the end of a nightmare. They were subjected to a long-term quarantine. Officially due to sanitary reasons. Unofficially, it was about checking if they had any communist or Nazi views. 

Female supervisors of the Stutthof camp

During the war, the Germans noticed that the young women serving as guards in concentration camps were crueler than men's guards. In the German press, therefore, announcements about attractive work were published. Women aged 21-45 were searched. Education was not important. High pay was guaranteed (after 3 months a significant increase) as well as luxury accommodation, meals, and business clothes. All supervisors visible in the picture with sadistic satisfaction used beatings and tortures against prisoners. After the war, they were tried by the Polish court and sentenced to death by hanging. Sitting in the middle, the torturer "Beautiful Specter" (the camp nickname) has commented on her death sentence: "Well. Life is indeed a pleasure, and pleasures usually last too short". 

 

On 6.11.2018, one of the last SS-man from the Stutthof crew, the 94-year-old Johann R., stood before the court in Munster. After the war, he lived affluent and peaceful life as a school headmaster.

In his testimony, he stresses that he only served as a guard at the watchtower and did not know anything about what was happening in the camp.
