Now entering Buchenwald
Bombshelter with plaque
Electric fence post
This is the reconstructed part of the fencing around the barracks area of Buchenwald.
Flowers and fences
Someone had placed a fresh, bright, red flower under the barbed wire at the reconstructed fence.
Building stone heaps at important things seemed to be the standard way of showing reverence in Buchenwald. Some do a little more than that.
This is the monument in memory of the Roma and Sinti who suffered in Buchenwald. A while away, the Jewish memorial monument stands - with Hebrew, German and English text in large stones.
These stone posts remain from the camp time. The actual houses are long since gone, and only exist as outlines in dark gravel.
Here, over 80 barracks were erected and housed extreme amounts of people during and after WWII.
Buchenwald camp gate
And Susanne, for scale
It says "Jedem das seine" - to each his own. Readable from the inside.
This is a one-man shelter, built in order to give the SS officials cover during bombing sweeps.
Interior of bomb shelter
Here, one person could, more or less, comfortably sit out a bombing sweep over the camp.
