Mortuary

The mortuary of the camp Laura is only known from reports by former inmates. It was a makeshift wooden structure, erected in December 1943 next to the infirmary. Corpses were kept in this building until they were brought to the crematorium in camp Buchenwald. The morturary was demolished after WWII. Only a small part of the concrete foundation is preserved.
