The villages of Lieberose and Jamlitz share a link to a dark chapter in German history. In Jamlitz, a secondary camp of the Sachsenhausen concentration camp was built in connection with plans to build a military training ground near Lieberose. The camp housed up to 4,300 prisoners, mainly Jews from Poland and Hungary. More than 1,300 people were shot here when the camp was closed because the inmates were unable to march to Sachsenhausen.
A small museum has been set up at the foot of the cemetery hill where photos, reports and documents are displayed and alternating special exhibitions are held. At the top of the hill there is a memorial to those who suffered in the atrocities.
