Territory of Terror Museum

Written by on September 24, 2019

Yanovsky concentration camp was a Nazi German labour, transit and extermination camp established in September 1941 in occupied Poland on the outskirts of Lwów, which is today the town of Lviv, Ukraine.

The camp was liquidated by the Germans in November 1943 ahead of the Red Army’s counteroffensive. According to Soviet prosecutors at the Nuremberg Trials, Yanovsky concentration camp was a pure death camp, although it also housed a factory.

Modern estimates put the total number of prisoners who passed through Janowska at over 100,000. The number of victims murdered at the camp is estimated at 35,000–40,000.

Now, a Territory of Terror Museum has been opened, displaying authentic archive photos, maps, eye-witnesses accounts and other exclusive items.
