Mauthausen-Gusen Memorial

Mauthausen-Gusen Memorial

Memorial for the victims of the Mauthausen-Gusen concentration camp in Austria.

The camp was a rock quarry where the prisoners were forced to work. The effects of malnutrition left the prisoners underweight and weakened. These prisoners were forced to carry rocks weighing up to 100 lbs up 186 stairs, known as the "Stairway of Death"

Altogether the camp had 200,000 inmates – over half of which died there.
