The charred remains of the camp were entered by the Soviets on 8 September 1944.There was a SS training facility SS-Truppenübungsplatz Heidelager nearby at Pustków, for the Ukrainian 14th Waffen SS Division, as well as other collaborationists military formations. Their field training included killing operations at Szebnie.
