From November 1, 1944 until December 16 1944 a concentration camp was established near Ladelund close to the border to Denmark. It was a subcamp to the Neuengamme concentration camp.

The camp had 2,000 internments who had to build the Frisian Wall at the west coast of Germany together with the internmented people from Camp Husum-Schwesing. 300 died during the construction, 106 were from the village Putten in the Netherlands.

The Frisian Wall was a protection dike that Hitler declared to be build along the German west coast between the Danish and Dutch border. Not only the internmented from the subcamps should build it, also the Hitler Youth were commanded to it.
