As the frontline and the operational combat zone shifted to the West, prisoner-of-war and internment camps were established one after the other, from which the interned and prisoners were transported to the Soviet Union. Prisoner-of-war and internment camp No 34 of the 2nd Ukrainian Front was probably established in Cegléd in November 1944. In the Cegléd camp at least 5000 people lost their lives. During its long existence, more than 200,000 prisoners were held here. In Hungary this prisoner-of-war camp operated for the longest time and was one of the largest internment and transit camps of the Carpathian Basin.
