Today, nothing is left to see of the three camp sites: the sports field, Kinzigdamm and the mining shaft of the “Vulkan” camp. A market hall was built to take the place of the barrack of the “Sportplatz” camp. There, a memorial plaque can be found. The barracks of the Kinzigdamm camp existed only for a short while and were demolished after the war; the “Vulkan” camp mining shafts were demolished and filled up.
There is an honour grave for 75 unidentified prisoners on the Haslach cemetery.
Central point of the open air memorial site, located in the Urenwald on the slope of the Vulkan, is a memorial monument created by the Haslach artist Frieder Haser. Benches are arranged around this memorial to facilitate on-site discussions among groups of visitors or instruction for school classes. Twelve information boards document the history of the three Haslach camps in pictures and text. Ruins remind of the former crushing shop and the mountain station of a funicular, which connected the place with the town over several kilometres. The dark entrance of a drainage shaft makes one imagine the horrible events that happened inside this shaft.
Access to the memorial is unrestricted. From the parking area it is 500 metres to the memorial. Users of wheelchairs should call in at the memorial in advance to be provided closer access by car.
Guided tours may be booked by appointment.
