Aus der Projektbeschreibung:

"Besides the main camps Auschwitz I, Auschwitz II-Birkenau and Auschwiz III-Monowitz, the Nazi camp complex Auschwitz comprised 44 sub camps. Most of them were located in Silesia. Here, tens of thousands of prisoners conducted forced labour in mines, steel- and power works as well as in agriculture and forestry and other industries. Many of the prisoners were Jews but there were also non-Jewish prisoners from almost every country in Europe including many Poles.

Even today, 75 years after the liberation of the Auschwitz camp system in January 1945, the history of these sub camps remains largely ignored outside the publications of the State Museum Auschwitz-Birkenau, while even their traces have mostly disappeared. The Tiergartenstrasse4Association e.V. now set itself the task to reconstruct the history of the Auschwitz sub camps, to document the state the historical sites are in, to give the victims a name and to publish their findings on the internet.

On the website the vast amount of material that was collected by the researchers over a period of 15 years is made available to the public for the first time. The detailed descriptions of each camp, which would amount to 800 printed pages in a book, are supplemented by maps, documents and over 3,500 pictures, among them historical photos of the SS administration, photos made by the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum during their post-war visits and photos made by the researchers themselves when visiting the sites decades later."
