Espeland concentration camp
|This article needs additional citations for verification. (September 2009)|
Espeland concentration camp was established in Arna, Norway, now a part of Bergen, by the Nazi authorities of occupied Norway in the summer of 1943. It was largely built by slave labor from the other concentration camp near Bergen, Ulven concentration camp. All prisoners from Ulven were transferred to this camp, which quickly became overcrowded.
Prisoners were mistreated and often brutalized, and the camp had a separate section for chain gangs and prisoners who were kept in solitary confinement. When liberated in 1945, there were 200 prisoners at Espeland.
