Regensburg Subcamp

March 19, 1945 – April 23, 1945

  • The Colosseum in the city district of Stadtamhof, 2019 (Flossenbürg Concentration Camp Memorial / Photo: Rainer Viertlböck). The prisoners of the subcamp Regensburg were quartered here.


In total, 460 men from all over Europe. More than half of the men arrived in Flossenbürg just before the subcamp was opened, having been on evacuation marches from the Groß-Rosen concentration camp.

Forced labor and quarters

The prisoners were quartered in the ballroom of the Colosseum guesthouse in Stadtamhof. From there they were forced to march to railway track sections damaged by air raids and remove the debris.


Detail leader Plagge and 50 SS guards. Plagge, a heavy drinker, beat the prisoners and was feared for his brutality.

Death toll

In only five weeks, over 40 prisoners died.

Disbanding of the camp / end of the war

The camp was evacuated in great panic during the evening of the 22nd-23rd of April, 1945; the prisoners had to march away in two columns. They were liberated either in Laufen or Leobendorf.


A memorial stone and two information panels in Stadtamhof memorialize the subcamp Regensburg.
