Klooga

The Klooga labor camp near the Estonian town of the same name was a satellite camp of the Vaivara concentration camp complex. The camp was erected in late 1943 and housed mainly Jewish inmates from various ghettos. When it was liberated toward the war’s end by the Soviets, they took pictures of pyres allegedly proving the Nazis’ misdeeds. It is an example of the rather crude Soviet propaganda efforts.
