Junkers Zweigwerk Schoenebeck
Schoenebeck was a further Junkers-Zweigwerk, which was under built up since September 1936. It was not a component facility, but a metal shop for surface and press works. The facility was located in the Barbyer Strasse. A total of 763 thousand sqaure metres shop capacity was available at Schoenebeck and 7800 people were employeed here.
After WWII the Junkers Flugzeugwerke facility was transfered to the nowadays Landtechnik AG Schoenebeck.
From March 1943 to April 1945 about 1000 KZ prisoners were forced to work at Junkers-Schoenebeck. A special camp was set up under the name "Julius" near Schoenebeck. A lot of the living baracks still exist today and are still used for living purposes.
Since October 1944 it was planned to transfer the production from Schoenebeck into a Kali mine Northwest of Westeregeln/Hadmersleben under the name Tarthun Schacht III/V. But this facility was not ready for production until April 1945, when the extension of the mine was stopped.
Another under meet facility of Schoenebeck was the natural cave Heimkehle at Rottleberode, which was operated under the name "Heller" or "A5" by Junkers-Schoenebeck. About 500 poeple from KZ camps were employeed here for the production of undercarriages.
