The main camp of Gross Rosen was the head of a German network of Nazi concentration
camps, which was consist of 100 subcamps in eastern Germany, Czechoslovakia, and occupied Poland. 125 thousand prisoners were forced to work in Gross-Rosen camps – most of them are Jews from all over Europe. 40 thousand of them were killed. Some well-known German companies enjoyed the slave labor in Gross-Rosen: Blaupunkt, Siemens, Krupp, IG Farben, Daimler-Benz, etc. Although this is an awful place to visit – you have to see it in your own eyes: The size of the site, the German companies' barracks. To see how the Simens slaves' workshop is operating right in front of the Crematorium, where they burned the bodies. It's shocking.
