Mühldorf camp

Mühldorf was a site where Organisation Todt (OT), part of the Armaments Ministry, had built vast semiunderground concrete bunkers with production sites for fighter aircraft. Many prisoners were infected with vermin because of the lack of washing facilities. As a consequence, typhus and typhoid fever spread quickly.
Yet despite this, Ernst experienced milder conditions here than in other camps.
