Records Relating to Concentration Camps

The National Archives at College Park, Maryland holds records pertaining to several World War II Nazi concentration camps: Buchenwald, Dachau, Flossenberg, Nordhausen, and Mauthausen. These records include textual, still picture, motion picture, and cartographic records. Among these are original camp records; records produced by U.S. Government agencies, both military and civilian; and captured German records, including evidence files assembled for war crimes proceedings. These records of both U.S. civil and military agencies include documentation developed through wartime intelligence and reconnaissance, captured during the camps’ liberation, and generated through postwar military investigations and tribunals.
