Kaufering V 

Sources on Kaufering V concentration subcamp are ambiguous.

According to investigations conducted by ITS, during the first post-war years Camp V existed from 1944 to 22 April 1945 in the vicinity of Utting and Kaufering X camp.

However there is no proof of the concentration subcamp in SS administration documents that we have access to today. Transfer lists, occupancy reports and SS personnel transfers do not exist for Camp V in contrast to the other ten camps belonging to the Landsberg/Kaufering concentration subcamp complex.

The deputy construction manager of the “Ringeltaube” senior construction management, Rudolf Neuhaus, reported on plans to build worker settlements in Türkheim and Türkenfeld to name a couple. Concentration camp prisoners from Camp VI were deployed to work at the former site. Aerial photos suggest a camp was also built in Türkenfeld to construct the workers’ settlement there. However, it has not been proven whether this is Camp V.
