POW Camp Stalag IX-B

Stalag IX-B (also known as Bad Orb) was a German World War II prisoner-of-war camp located south-east of the town of Bad Orb in Hesse, Germany. It had the reputation of being one of the worst Stalags, especially when it was overcrowded in 1945. The camp was also the site of the segregation and removal of Jewish-American troops who, once identified, were transferred to the labor camp at Berga.
