The disappearance of the camps
Following the dissolution of the "Resettlers’ Camp" in summer 1946, the town of Nordhausen had the barracks of the former Camp Dora disassembled and some of it re-erected in the destroyed town and the region.
The Memorial during the GDR Era
In the area around the former crematorium, the first commemorative signs are installed after the war. However, despite the establishment of a Memorial in the 1960s, large parts of the site remained beyond public perception.
