Former Schirmeck-Vorbrück Internment Camp

Few traces remain of the internment camp which was entirely dismantled between 1954 and 1960. However the building of the “Kommandatur” of the camp, built in 1943, is still located on the “Rue du Souvenir.” It is now privately owned and only a plaque on the building's façade recalls the grim page of history that was written here.
To see also: The entrance gate to the former Town Hall/Media Library in Schirmeck is the original entrance gate to the internment camp.
