Stalag 13 was a post-World War II POW camp in Nuremberg, Germany, that held former SS military personnel.[1] It imprisoned 15,000 SS members.[1] In 1946 there was an attempt to kill the SS prisoners, apparently by Abba Kovner's Jewish Revenge organisation. A member of the group got a job as a baker and poisoned the bread to be fed to the prisoners. Large numbers were taken ill, but the actual death toll is not known.[2]
