The Türkheim KZ or Kaufering VI was a subcamp of Dachau concentration camp, it was in operation from October 1944. The camp was liberated by the US troops on 27 April, 1945, however the Commandant of Türkheim, SS-Oberscharführer Karl Hofmann opened the gates on 26 April, and most of the prisoners could flee into the woods.

Within 10 months about 30,000 prisoners went through the 11 Kaufering camps, most of them were Hungarian or Romanian Jews, and survivors of the Polish and Lithuanian ghettos. In the larger camps about 3,000–4,000 people were detain, in the smaller camps – like Türkheim – a few hundred at times.

In mid April 1945 most of the Kaufering camps were evacuated. Some prisoners were taken to Dachau others forced to go on a death march to Upper Bavaria. The International Red Cross estimated the number of death at 14,500 among the Kaufering prisoners.
