Concentration Camp Lublin, commonly known as Majdanek, was the second biggest Nazi camp in occupied Europe. It was established in 1941, and operated until the day of liberation of Lublin, in July 1944. Within those years it functioned as a concentration, labour, transit, hostage and death camp. After liberation, in November 1944, the State Museum at Majdanek was founded as the first museum in a former Nazi camp in Europe. Some of the prisoners’ barracks and warehouses, the gas chambers bunker and the crematory building are preserved on the territory of today’s State Museum.
