1940s POLISH PHOTO POSTCARD GERMAN CONCENTRATION CAMP MAJDANEK. Very good condition.

Majdanek was a German Nazi concentration camp on the outskirts of Lublin, Poland. The camp operated from October 1, 1941 until July 22, 1944, when it was captured nearly intact by the advancing Soviet Red Army. Although conceived as a forced labor camp and not as an extermination camp, over 79,000 people died t (59,000 of them Polish Jews) during the 34 months of its operation.
The name 'Majdanek' ("little Majdan") derives from the nearby Majdan Tatarski ("Tartar Maidan") district of Lublin, and was given to the camp in 1941 by the locals, who were aware of its existence. For reasons initially related to its funding, Majdanek was officially "Prisoner of War Camp of the Waffen-SS in Lublin" from October 1, 1941 until February 16, 1943, when it officially became "Konzentrationslager Lublin" (Concentration Camp Lublin).
