    In this way, the newly arrived prisoners had to make their death march in the gas chamber. Very scary, if you think about it.

    Inmates developed access road to the camp. Driven brutally and mercilessly by the SS, from mid-1938 until late-autumn 1939, prisoners had to extend an approximately five-kilometer link from the Weimar-Ramsla state road to the concentration camp on the route of an old Waldchaussee. The inmates called her "blood road." Part of the concrete road is original. Source: buchenwald.de/569

    The Blutstraße - built by prisoners from 1938 to 1939 - leads from here to the former Buchenwald concentration camp on the Ettersberg near the city of Weimar. The Weimar-Buchenwald railway line ran parallel to the Blutstraße. In 1943, prisoners also built the 10 km long route in just 3 months. Today the old tracks are covered with earth. At Buchenwald station, some of the old rails have been exposed again - as a memento.
