In the early days of the camp, the SS had the dead in the camp cremated in the Weimar crematorium. In 1940 the Buchenwald concentration camp received its own crematorium. The incineration plant installed there by the company Topf & Sons, Erfurt, was specially designed for the needs of the SS. Inmates housed in the building did the work.
