> From: Stephen Esrati [email@example.com] > > This may be old news, but you may find a list of all camps on line at: > http://www2.3dresearch.com/~june/Vincent/Camps/ListeEng.html This list is far from complete. Off the top of my head, here are some camps in Poland that aren't mentioned: Janowska Road, Skarzysko-Kamienna, HASAG in Czestochowa, Treblinka I (different from Treblinka II, the extermination camp), transit camps at Pruszlow, Ursus and Malkinia, a whole complex of camps around Warsaw for carrying out a water-diversion project, for example Kampinos and Piekelko, the Gesia Street prison in the Warsaw ghetto, Trawniki, Poniatowo ... I could list many more. A few others: Alderney in the Channel Islands, and in France: Argeles, Azemmour, Les Milles, Rieucros, Recebedou, Le Vernet, among others. Some of these camps were quite large, with 10,000 prisoners or more. Also the 'country' classifications are puzzling. There weren't any German camps in Russia, that I know of, but a number in Ukraine and Belarus. There were also camps in the Baltic states that aren't mentioned: one that comes to mind is the Ninth Fort in Kovno. By 'actual Polish names' I assume he means 'current Polish names'. Many of the localities listed as being in Poland are in the postwar boundaries of Poland but at the time were within the borders of the Reich, in particular Gross-Rosen, Auschwitz, Stutthof and Chelmno. The same is true of Natzweiler in relation to France. Also a complete listing of camps would have to include the Rumanian camps in Transnistria, particularly the Golta complex. Yet another omission is Horseroed in Denmark. This is without researching the matter particularly, though I reached for Marrus & Paxton for information on France. If one did sit down and research it thoroughly, there would no doubt be hundreds and perhaps thousands more. Without even getting into such things as camps for Soviet PoWs.
