The town of Ellrich looks back on a very specific history of the past seventy years. As the site of one of the cruellest concentration camps, namely the Ellrich-Juliushütte, sub-camp of the Mittelbau-Dora complex, and due to its subsequent geographic location right next to the inner-German border, identity-shaping times and symbols are overlaid here in ways that are difficult to differentiate. On the surface it is an ordinary place with a partly renovated centre and brightly coloured new housing estates. However, with just as many buildings standing empty and all the signs of decaying buildings typical of the GDR, it is a specific form of remembrance of Nazi atrocities that still echoes here, reflecting the different approach to history between East and West Germany.
