Plans have been made to build a sausage museum on the site of a former Nazi concentration camp for Jewish slave labourers, it is reported in the German media.

Public broadcaster MDR, news agency dpa and others reported that the German Bratwurst Museum will be moved to the site, on the outskirts of the eastern town of Muehlhausen.

About 700 Jewish women from Eastern Europe were imprisoned at the camp during the Nazi era.

It was a satellite site for the much larger Buchenwald concentration camp, which was liberated by the US Army in April 1945.

Inmates of both camps were deployed as slave labourers at local arms factories.

MDR reported that the association operating the museum was unaware of the location’s history, but said it was willing to commemorate the past appropriately.
