Dora – Concentration Camp of the “Total War”

The film "Dora – Concentration Camp of the 'Total War'" tells the story of the penultimate concentration camp to be founded during the “Third Reich”. The inmates of the Mittelbau concentration camp were forced to work in the assembly of the “retaliation weapons” V1 and V2 propagated by the Nazi regime, and in the construction of underground aircraft factories and fuel plants. Of the more than 60,000 thousand Mittelbau inmates, one third did not survive concentration camp imprisonment.

Historical film footage and interviews with survivors provide an overview of what it meant to be an inmate of the Mittelbau concentration camp.

The passages shown here are from the documentary realized by the director Loretta Walz on behalf of the Mittelbau-Dora Concentration Camp Memorial.
