These photos from the United States Strategic Bombing Survey collection show the bombing attack on 24 August 1944. On the first, before the attack - the inmates' camp appears at the upper right, with the SS compound in a semi-circle (and the adjacent buildings), and the Gutsloff armament factory - the actual target - at the lower right. In the second, bombs are hitting the Gutsloff complex and the SS compound. On the third, the resulting damage - the Gutsloff complex was heavily damaged, but several bombs, including incendiaries, also fell on the inmates' camp. Some estimates of inmate casualties from this attack number as high as 8000.
