Natzwiller is a commune in the Bas-Rhin department in Grand Est in north-eastern France.HistoryBuilt in spring 1941 on the territory of the commune, Natzweiler-Struthof opened for prisoners in May 1941. It was the only Nazi concentration camp on French soil. The inmates originally were German who were to supply labor for building V-2 rocket factories in man-made caves dug out of the Vosges Mountains. The prisoners lived in the cold, damp tunnels as they built them. Natzweiler-Struthof was expanded by the Nazis with the installation of a gas chamber in April 1943 and crematory. The camp's main function was temporary detention of Resistance fighters from overrun European nations, although selected Nazi experiments on Jews were carried out here.MuseumThe camp site has been preserved as a museum and includes a monument to the departed.Plan your trip to Natzwiller and other France destinations using our handy France holiday planner.
