An open air documentation called “Block 25 Location: The Tent” is set up at the former location of a tent which was used by the SS to house concentration camp prisoners in the overcrowded camp. The tent was sent up by the SS between Blocks 24 and 26 in August 1944. At times, there were over 4,000 prisoners penned up here in catastrophic conditions.
