The postwar camp, the trials, and memory

Some of the “ Goldfisch ” machines were sent to the USSR as payment for war damages, while others remained the property of Daimler-Benz or were allocated to former “ Goldfisch ” employees in the Neckar Valley.

The camp’s commanders were sentenced for their crimes in other concentration camps, while the French military tribunal in Rastatt tried a few guards and deportees who held positions there.

Today, the Neckarelz annex camp commemorative site ensures that the Neckar camps are not forgotten. A museum set up in the Clemens-Brentano primary school (formerly camp I) and a historical tour in Obrigheim, near the tunnel of the former “ Goldfisch ” company, bear grim witness to the life, work and suffering of the KZ’s former deportees.
