The KZ-Außenlager Schwarzheide was located about one kilometer northeast of the town of Schwarzheide.

During the Second World War more than 100 outside camps of the Sachsenhausen and Ravensbrück concentration camps were established, especially in today's federal states of Berlin, Brandenburg and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. From July 5, 1944 to April 16, 1945, the KZ-Außenlager Schwarzheide was one of the Sachsenhausen exteriors with about ten wooden barracks in a pine forest. The prisoners here were largely Jewish men from the Theresienstadt Family Camp in Birkenau.
