A camp for men, opened in August 1938, near Linz in northern Austria.

Mauthausen was classified by the SS as a camp of utmost severity. Conditions there were brutal, even by concentration camp standards.

Nearly 100,000 prisoners of various nationalities were either worked or tortured to death at the camp before liberating American troops arrived in May 1945.
