  • Jugendverwahrlager / Detention Camps for Juveniles

    In the so-called Jugendverwahrlager (Detention Camps for Juveniles) the Nazis interned non-German children and adolescents until the age of 16 which they considered conspicious or criminal. Generally they had to do forced labor and were examined for their Eindeutschungsfähigkeit (capability to become Germans). An example of this type of camp is the Polen-Jugendverwahrlager in Litzmannstadt/Lodz in which Polish children and adolescents were held.
