Majdanek

German concentration camp in Lublin, coloquially called Majdanek, was created by the decision of Heinrich Himmler. Built in the autumn of 1941, the camp was initially called Kriegsgefangenenlager der Waffen SS Lublin - a prisoner-of-war camp, and in February 1943 it was renamed Konzentrationslager Lublin - a concentration camp. Since October 1942, a women's camp began to function on one of the fields, too. Although the project of creating a children's camp at Majdanek was never implemented, you could find Jewish, Belarusian and Polish children from the Zamosc region among the adults. The prisoners came from 30 different countries. Most of them were citizens of Poland (mainly Poles and Jews), the Soviet Union and Czechoslovakia (Jews).

The prisoners died as a result of tragic humanitarian and living conditions, they were executed or murdered in gas chambers. Out of 150,000 prisoners who made it through Majdanek, nearly 80,000 people lost their lives, including around 60,000 Jews. To cover up traces of crimes, the corpses of the murdered and the dead were burned on the pyre and in the crematorium.

On July 23, 1944, after the Red Army entered Lublin, the camp was liberated.
