The living huts

Officially the camp was designed to house about six hundred prisoners. The camp was dirty and hygiene was low. In winter it was a mudpool and in summer the camp changed into a dustbowl. The number of toilets was insufficient for the number of prisoners and the sewers were partly open. Uncovered piles of refuse were in the camp. The two living huts were filled with cots and there was no provision to spend the daytime. In the open space between the cots were tables with benches.

Only one third of the prisoners had a place to sit. Next to the living huts were toilets and washing rooms. Prisoners were allowed to use the shower once a week.
