Description: Hinzert (SS-Sonderlager Hinzert or Konzentrationslager/KZ Hinzert) was a Nazi concentration camp located in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany, 30km away from the Luxembourg border.
Between 1939 and 1945, 13,600 political prisoners between the ages of 13 and 80 were imprisoned at Hinzert. Many were in transit towards larger concentration camps where most would be killed. However, a significant number of prisoners were executed at Hinzert. The camp was administered, run, and guarded mainly by the SS, who, according to Hinzert survivors, were notorious for their brutality and viciousness.
