JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Riederloh More (Kaufering camps) #general


This is just a follow-up to the message I sent earlier regarding
Lili Susser's Sept.10-02 inquiry regarding a camp called Riederloh.

I just checked my copy of "The Holocaust Chronicle,"(Publications
International,Ltd. 2002). Although it doesn't mention Riederloh,
it does have a photograph of a group grave exhumation of victims
found at one of the eleven "Kaufering" camps (of which Riederloh
was one, as I learned while researching Riederloh on the Internet).
According to the "Chronicle's" account, at these subsidiaries of
Dachau the inmates were supposed to build fighter-aircraft factories,
but the program was never carried out. Thousand of inmates at
these camps died of exhaustion, starvation, and disease, or they
were executed (not that the causes of death at the Kaufering camps
differed >from those at other Nazi camps!). On another page of the
"Chronicles" there is still another photograph of camp III of the
Kaufering camps, this one showing a commandant Eichelsdorfer who
was forced to stand amid the corpses of those shot as the Americans
neared the camp.

But as I wrote in my earlier response I had found on the internet
a mention of Riederloh in connection with the Alfred-Noble Dynamite
factories. Perhaps the building of the Dynamite factory at Riderloh
was never accomplished.
