Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Mittelbau-Dora, sometimes known as Mittelbau or Nordhausen, was a Nazi concentration camp in Germany, in the Kohnstein South of the Harz Mountains as a sub-camp of the already existing Buchenwald Camp. Eventually it was comprised of more than forty camps. The main goal of the complex was to establish the underground production of armaments, notably the V-2 rocket. During its eighteen months of activity, approximately 60,000 prisoners from twenty-one nations passed through; an estimated 20,000 of those died in this prison.
