This memorial is part of the former Nazi concentration camps.

However, most of the infrastructure of the former camp was destroyed or dismantled a few years after the end of the war, however The Monument to Struggle and Martydom has dominated the entire area since 1968.
In the afternoon we return to Gdansk and visit an impressive exhibition at the WWII Museum.
It’s good to remember that Gdansk–Westerplatte is a place where this catastrophe has started on 1st September 1939.
