MAJDANEK

Concentration camp Majdanek

On the orders of Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler and under the command of Odilo Globocnik, the SS and police leader of the Lublin district, the Majdanek concentration and extermination camp was established in 1941.
Majdanek was to become the largest concentration camp, larger than Auschwitz-Birkenau, and experts estimate that at least 250,000 people died in the Majdanek concentration camp – men, women and children from around 50 nations. 60 percent of them died as a result of starvation, illness or torture. 40 percent were executed in the gas chambers or in mass shootings.
