Mittelbau-Dora Holocaust Memorial

Bronze model of the Mittelbau-Dora concentration camp funded by former Commission Member Amy S. Epstein and her husband Bruce.

 

The Commission funded a large model of the Nazi German's infamous Mittelbau-Dora Labor Camp at the entrance to the memorial museum built by the German government on the site.

Then Commission Member Amy Epstein and her husband, Bruce, generated the funds that were used for the model.

Mittelbau-Dora inmates were forced to labor under intolerable conditions to construct V-2 rockets in tunnels in a mountain near the camp in Nordhausen, Germany. The death toll was so high that a special crematorium was built at the camp to dispose of the bodies.

The museum and the model dedicated in April 2005, at the 60th anniversary of the camp’s liberation by the 3rd U.S. Army.
