Located in Germany, Buchenwald was one of the worst Nazi concentration camps, although not often mentioned. It is alleged that the wife of the commandant (her name: Ilsa(Ilse (sp?)) Koch) used the skin(sometimes tattooed) of prisoners to make objects, one often mentioned is a lampshade.
Some people believe that the evidence was falsified by the Allied liberators, but if this were the case, why only in Buchenwald? There would be equal opportunities and will(on behalf of the Allies and the ex-prisoners) to make false accusations at any concentration camp. A lot of these disagreements most likely come from Neo-Nazis and Anti-Semites anyway.
Buchenwald is was a horrible place and should be remebered as such.
