Where is the location of the KZ Melk

by stapler4 Online Now Jul 5, 2008 at 7:22 AM

Hi there!

I've searched everywhere on this site for even a mention of the Konzentrationlager Melk and nothing appears. I'd like to visit the site of my grandfather's death and my father's KZ camp. Can anyone provide with information on how to get to the location of the former KZ Melk.
Thanks

    there is a memorial at the site of the former Nazi-concentration camp. Its address is:
    Gedenkstätte Melk, Schießstadtweg, opening hours Thu-Sun 10am-2pm, or call Mrs Blak, +43 (2752) 51888.
    There are 2 pictures of the memorial at http://www.mkoe.at/
    unfortunately the website seems to be available only in german

    My grandfather lies there too, and we have visited regularly. You walk "up" along the Donau from the Stift and take left up a steep hill. You walk turning right around a "camp" (beleive it was a military camp after the war), and then right down hill again after passing it. Just when you start downhill, there is a gate in the fence to your right, and behing it a small crematorium, where you will find all the memorials. I beleive the adress given by the former reply is correct. A lady living nearby used to have the key.
