Columbarium. Remains of ghetto residents were interred here until the Nazis dispersed the ashes in an attempt to cover their crimes. A plaque at the site reads: In the corridors of this fortification cardboard urns containing the ashes of the dead prisoners were deposited. All the urns--actually about 25,000--were removed by the SS at the end of 1944. Most of the ashes were thrown into the River Ohre. The remaining ashes were buried near the Litomerice concentration camp.
