In October 1943, the sub-camp of Brünn was set up in the town of Brno in Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic), around 250km from Auschwitz. Prisoner numbers decreased steadily from its inception until the SS evacuated the camp as the work duties became less and less. From the 251 prisoners sent originally, only 36 remained who were then sent by train to Austria. The Americans finally liberated them on May 3rd, 1945.
