Why the Death Marches Happened
Stutthof Death March
In April 1945, hundreds of prisoners were driven to the Baltic Sea and shot again, the rest were evacuated from the camp by seas since the Soviet forces surrounded the camp. 4,000 were sent on a boat to Germany while the rest were sent to different camps. Many prisoners drowned along the way. The estimated death toll is that over 25,000 prisoners died.
