To get to the camp, you have to walk around a corner and down the “Camp Street” (1000 meters long). Along the wall bordering the camp are brutal images like this telling the story of the death march which began on the evening of April 21, 1945 as Soviet forces drew near. The prisoners were marched 20-40km per day towards the Baltic Sea. Those who could not keep up were shot at the roadside by the SS guards. Many thousands of prisoners failed to survive.
