Mission Statement

The KZ Gusen Memorial Committee Digital Archive’s purpose is to honor the 40,000 victims of KZ Gusen I, II, and III. We also wish to make what meager amends are possible to the survivors and their families by disseminating information about these once forgotten camps in Upper Austria.  Recognizing how small this offering is in relation to the loss and suffering, we yet hold open the door of this virtual visitor’s center in hopes that an exact account of the crimes might build common ground for future generations, even where wounds remain unhealed.

The KZ Gusen Memorial Committee Digital Archive Project was conceived of and is supported by the KZ Gusen Memorial Committee within Arbeitskreis fuer Heimat-, Denkmal- und Geschichtspflege St. Georgen an der Gusen, Austria, with the co-operation of the East Campus of Pima Community College in Tucson, Arizona. The 11th Armored Division, one of the liberating divisions, has also funded our research.

For an overview of the history of the Gusen camps, we direct readers to the KZ Gusen Memorial Info-pages At Pima Community College, Robert Wise is our technical advisor and Jan-Ruth Mills serves as researcher/editor. Pima Community College student contributors are acknowledged where their work appears within these files. We especially wish to thank Dr. Larry McDonald at the National Archives in College Park, Maryland, and Mr. Joseph Caver at the US Air Force Historical Research Agency at Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama, for their assistance. Dr. Amy Schmidt at NARA directed us to copies of the Dachau War Crimes Trial transcripts and exhibits.
