Lager Udet was a German Organisation Todt work camp located on La Route Orange, St Brelade. It housed OT workers as well as both forced and slave labour from Russia, Spain and other nationalities. The bulk of this labour was withdrawn from the island late in 1943. The Spanish were Republicans who had fled to France after Franco’s victory in 1939. Later, the Vichy Government had handed them over to the Germans as conscripted labourers. These aerial reconnaissance photographs, taken at different times during the war, show Lager Udet. It consisting of 16 large barrack huts with a wired-off inner compound, which presumably held slave labours. By 1945 the camp had been taken down leaving only traces of trenches and where the huts were positioned.
