The “Stalag” camps were – so to say – the umbrella organization for delivering war prisoners to German industry/economy
One of the first and also one of the largest camps was STALAG III A on the outskirts of Luckenwalde, a small town south of Berlin.

Nowadays the only thing that remains of that camp is the cemetery


In Stalag III A, a total of about 200,000 prisoners of war were registered here and exploited as forced laborers during World War II
