Auschwitz-Birkenau - Outlying Sub-camps

   This page addresses some of the outlying sub-camps of the Auschwitz complex - camps outside the immediate Auschwitz-Birkenau-Monowitz area, but that were administered as sub-camps by the Auschwitz camp command and control (from November 1943, administered by the Monowitz camp). In total there were some 47 Auschwitz sub-camps with over 35,000 inmates in January 1945 (Ref. 5, page 171).

   The following camps are shown on this page:

Blechhammer North and South
Gleiwitz II and III
Sola-Hütte (not a traditional labor camp, but the facilities were built by Auschwitz prisoners)




   Continue to Auschwitz II Birkenau extermination camp and concentration / slave labor camp
   Continue to Judenrampe rail arrival site
   Continue to Auschwitz III Monowitz and surrounding labor camps, along with the IG Farben Buna-Werke factory site
