A soaring monument stands above the camp in memory of those who served time at Le Struthof. Many French resistance and former military members were sent here and are buried in the national cemetery next to the Memorial.
At the bottom of the camp lie a prison block where prisoners were given special attention and another building which housed rooms for awful pseudoscientific medical experiments as well as a crematory oven in which the dead were cremated. A side room is full of funerary urns which deportee families were forced to buy though no guarantee was given as to whose ashes were included in the urn they received. Urns were only sent to families inside Germany and since most of the deportees were from all over Europe, their ashes ended up in a common ash pit located between the crematory and prison blocs.
From the museum you can walk down past the former barracks buildings which stair step down the mountain from the museum. Each barracks foundation memorializes one of the former Nazi camps. Listen to the wind and remember those who were brought here and brutalized.
