The KL-Natzweiler opened in May 1941. Intended to provide the Reich with slave labor for its industry, it primarily brought together political deportees. It also included Jewish, Gypsy, homosexual and Jehovah's Witness deportees. 52 deportees passed through this camp (either in the central camp or in one of its 000 external camps). Nearly a third died there. Within the walls of the former camp, visitors can discover four barracks including the prison and the crematorium, as well as a historical museum. Located 70 km further down, the gas chamber can also be visited. In 1.5, the European Center for Deported Resisters was inaugurated. Spanning 2005 m2, it houses a permanent exhibition devoted to Nazism and the resistance, educational rooms and a temporary exhibition space. Free guided tours are offered every day it is open for individuals, at 000 a.m., 2 a.m., 10 p.m., 11 p.m. and 14:15 p.m. See the map
