Jadu concentration camp
Jadu was the site of an Italian concentration camp during the Second World War.[2] In 1942, about 2,600 Jews [3] and other people, who were considered undesirables, were rounded up throughout Libya and sent to the Jadu camp.[4] 564 died from typhus and other privations.[5] The camp was liberated by the British Army in January 1943.
