In Neugraben was a subcamp of the Nazi concentration camp Neuengamme. On September 13, 1944 the women subcamp was opened in Falkenbergweg. 500 Czechish-Jewish women coming from the Ghetto Theresienstadt were deported to the Auschwitz concentration camp. The SS in Auschwitz selected the women for labour in Hamburg. In the Neugraben camp the work was building auxiliary homes, also laying supply pipes and building streets in the neighbourhood Falkenbergsiedlung. During the last months of the WWII some of the women had to do clearing up work in Harburg's oil industry and to dig antitank obstacles in Hamburg-Hausbruch.
