After the Mauthausen main camp and the sub-camps were liberated, the American military had until July 1945 to illegally remove machinery from the underground munitions factories before the camps had to be turned over to the Soviet Union on July 28, 1945, by prior agreement. On September 10, 1945, the Soviets began taking equipment from the Gusen underground factory where the Nazis had been building Messerschmitt jet airplanes. The removal of the machinery was completed by December 21, 1946. In July 1947, the final transport of equipment from Gusen to the Soviet Union was completed. On November 15, 1947, the tunnels where the factories were located at Gusen were destroyed by the Soviets.

The former main camp at Mauthausen became a camp for Displaced Persons who were waiting to emigrate to other countries after the war.

The Soviet Union also took charge of the quarry at Gusen and continued to take stone from it, operating under a company called Granitewerke Gusen. In 1955, the Allied occupation of Austria ended and the Soviets moved out; the railroad and the station at Gusen were dismantled. The property that remained after the Soviets left was given to the Austrian people. In the late 1950ies, the land in the Gusen area was privatized and private homes were built where the camps used to be.

It's a great and thorough explanation; you ought to take a look.

My mother.

After the Americans ate their meals, they would throw the rest of the food out.

And it's not outlandish.

Just look at how much food stores throw out everyday (I know, I did unless I could somehow give it to some of the homeless).

Same for fast food places (or used to be when they didn't make to order, but prepared in advance).

Somewhere in Czechoslovokia as far as my mother and grandfather were concerned. Probably near Prague.

>Don't you want to know?

Does it really matter? (Not to me anyway).

But I hear it's the in thing for teenagers anyway.

Probably even you.

You're a lying POS.

You throw out food "everyday"? LOL

They are regulated by entirely different laws than the military.

To my mother, it was just one more disaster on top of others. As she put it in part, her playground was a cemetary (that was before the camp).

>There is a huge push to get the stories from the last remaing survivors.
>Humanity needs them.

That was one of the few good things done.

It hasn't done much good overall (and in fact will do some harm it seems).

Actually that would be my mother, as she is the one who told the story.

>You throw out food "everyday"? LOL

We did. It might not be much, but it would feed at least a person or two a day

>They are regulated by entirely different laws than the military.

There were no regulations. It was done to stop the semblance (or possibility of) of employee theft.

Sure she did, shaman-boy!

LOL. The Army had no regulations!

I think you need to cut back on your recreational drug consumption. No, that wouldn't help. You were just born to be a lying POS.

Susanna says:
The Americans did not throw food out and NOT feed the ex prisoners. They fed them very well and at first, often with fatal results as the starved system could not handle the sudden intalke. They learned quickly to give small portions to the survivors and slowly increase.

It would certainly matter to me.

The Americans apparently did in some cases, and I couldn't say with certainty if the food was wanted by the ex-prisoners or some of the surrounding citizens.

It's a moot point anyway.

Maybe, there were some other camps and the work camps too.

Bryan Borich says:
Well for me, it didn't at the time. And there wasn't much of a way I was going to talk my mother into reliving it anymore than she already did. she had more than enough unhappiness in her life to go around.

And from what I know now, I've seen things much worse than the camps (and more than probably will again).

Yes, Kratzau / Chrastava, and Theresienstadt had 9 subcamps.

I'm much more curious in other directions. And it was obviously something my mother didn't really want to get into.
