Work Camps

 

Work camps are small, satellite camps administered by a main camp. Typically only privates and non-commissioned officers below the rank of Sergeant were put to work at these camps, of which there were many thousands. Consequently those listed below represent only a small fraction of those in existence, and I would welcome any further information to expand upon it, preferably with the assigned camp number. The camps below have two numbers; the first is that of the main camp, the second of the work camp; e.g. PIG. 62/51 represents Work Camp 51 of PIG. 62.

 

This list has been compiled by Brian Sims, and I am indebted to him for supplying the website with a copy. It has been pieced together from reports filed by prisoners of war who escaped to Switzerland after the Italian surrender in September 1943. Note that some of the camps could have been located elsewhere prior to this time. Some of the locations are spelt phonetically, or have the name of the nearest village/town/district.
