Summary – “Take an emotional journey to a place that will never be forgotten”
Stutthof (Sztutowo) is about 35 kilometres east of Gdansk. During the years from 1939 to 1945 it was known as one of the most brutal of Nazi camps. It was used as a killing ground for Polish opposition in the Gdansk region, but later in 1942 that changed and it became a camp of extermination. Over 100,000 people were kept in the camp, and the number of dead is estimated at 65-85,000. Stutthof became infamous by Rudolf Spanner’s factory that produced soap from human fat. The atrocious conditions in the camp are commemorated by the Council of Martyrdom.
The tour follows a trail that leads around the barracks of the old and new camp, the villa of the main commander, the gas chamber, the crematorium, and the watch towers to the Stutthof memorial. The museum gives testimony to the martyrdom of Poles, Jews and people of 30 other nationalities that were also killed in the camp during World War II. Stutthof National Museum is a place that once should prepare themselves fully before visiting.
