In December 1944, a satellite camp to Auschwitz was set up in Plawy, about two kilometers from Auschwitz-Birkenau. In Plawy, prisoners worked with agriculture such as livestock and cultivation. The purpose was to provide Auschwitz with food and drinks such as meat, milk, potatoes, vegestables, eggs etc. Already in spring 1944, work commandos from Birkenau had been working in Plawy, but they had to walk back and forth to Plawy every working day which was time consuming. Therefore a camp was built on the site for prisoners working at Plawy. About 350 male and female prisoners worked at Plawy. After work, the prisoners were locked in separate barracks. The camp was evacuated in January 1945, and the prisoners were sent west.

Current status: Demolished (2015).

Address: Zadworska, 32-600 Harmeze.

Get there: Car.

My comment:

Some remains of the camp fence can be found on the former camp area. Beside that, nothing seems to be preserved.
