    The Eisenhower visit (with Generals George S. Patton and Omar Bradley) was to Ohrdruf concentration camp near Ohrdruf, south of Gotha, in Thuringia, Germany, liberated on April 4, 1945, by the 4th Armoured Division and the 89th Infantry Division. It was the first Nazi concentration camp liberated by the U.S. Army and was part of the Buchenwald concentration camp network. By late 1944, around 10,000 prisoners were housed here, through March 1945 the total number sent here was around 20,000, mainly Russians, Poles & Hungarian Jews, of whom an estimated 7,000 died.
