Buchenwald is the fifth album by Whitehouse released in 1981 by Come Organisation (later reissued by Susan Lawly).


Though very common in much early Whitehouse, Buchenwald has a high pitched sound of feedback throughout the entire album, except for a brief pause in the title track "Buchenwald". It also uses a distinct horn-like sound, though it is electronic. The track "Dedicated to Albert de Salvo - Sadist and Mass Slayer" refers to the Boston Strangler, which like the song "Dedicated to Peter Kürten" from their previous album, is an instrumental track.

Buchenwald was originally limited to 500 copies on vinyl on the group owned record label Come Organisation. It was later reissued by the group's second record label Susan Lawly on compact disc in 1996.
