Towards the end of the war, Gusen was folded into the Mauthausen-Gusen camp system and some consider Gusen to one of most brutal of the Austrian camps; it was at Gusen 420 Jewish children were killed by lethal injection to the heart.
The camp was largely forgotten until 1965, when camp survivors worried about the horrors being forgotten and bought up the property to preserve the crematorium and build the Gusen Memorial. In 2004, the Austrian government—in collaboration with Poland—built the Gusen museum.
