Initially 28, later 58 men. Almost half of the prisoners came from Poland, a quarter from the Soviet Union, with the others being German, Yugoslavian, Greek, French, and Czech.

Forced labor and quarters

The prisoners were forced to do construction and excavation work for the SS military sickbay of the Würzburg university hospital, as well as build a sickbay barrack in the clinic’s courtyard. They also built air raid shelters; following air raids they would clear undetonated bombs and recover dead bodies.

They were quartered in a barrack in the so-called emergency prison (Notgefängnis) (Friesstraße). The food rations and hygiene conditions were better than in Flossenbürg.
