The "Heide Haus" convalescent home near Hannover, where inmates from the Ahlem camp were sent following the camp's liberation.
Early in September 1944, some 1,000 Jews from Lodz, who had been deported to the Birkenau camp upon the ghetto's liquidation, were sent to Ahlem. By the time of the camp's liberation on April 10, 1945, only some few dozens of this group survived. The Jews whose bodies were in this mass grave had been killed by the Germans about to abandon the camp. The remains were later disinterred and reburied in a cemetery in Hannover. Close
