Konzentrationslager Groß-Rosen, Gross-Rosen concentration camp was a German network of Nazi concentration camps built and operated during World War II. At its peak activity in 1944, the Gross-Rosen complex had up to 100 subcamps. The biggest sub-camps included AL Fünfteichen in Jelcz-Laskowice, four camps in Wroclaw, Dyhernfurth in Brzeg Dolny, Landeshut in Kamienna Góra, and the entire Project Riese along the Owl Mountains. Among the companies that benefited from the slave labour of the concentration camp inmates were German electronics manufacturers such as Blaupunkt or Siemens, as well as Krupp, IG Farben, and Daimler-Benz among others.
Monument to heroes of the Second World War who were murdered by the Germans in Jawor, Slonsk, Gross Rosen, Swidnica, Wroclaw as the Nacht und Nebel (NN) victims. Sadowa Str. (Ulica Sądowa) # Podwale Str., Wroclaw, Poland.
Nacht und Nebel (German for "Night and Fog") was a directive (German: Erlass) from Adolf Hitler on 7 December 1941 targeting political activists and resistance "helpers" that was originally intended to winnow out "anyone endangering German security" (die deutsche Sicherheit gefährden) throughout Nazi Germany's occupied territories. Its name was a direct reference to a Tarnhelm spell, from Wagner's Das Rheingold. Gross-Rosen was known for its brutal treatment of the Nacht und Nebel prisoners vanishing without a trace from targeted communities. Most died in the granite quarry.
