Aurich is the capital of the Aurich District in Niedersachsen, Germany. Aurich was founded in the 13th century on Ems-Jade Canal, some 25km from the East Frisian coast. It is mentioned in the 1276 'Brokmerbrief' document.
The town center of Aurich dates from around 1517 when Count Edzard helped rebuild the town following an attack. Aurich changed hands several times, ruled by the Kingdom of Prussia from 1744 and then the Kingdom of Hanover from 1815 before being annexed by Prussia again in 1866.
During the Second World War, for most of 1944, Aurich was the location of a Nazi concentration camp, a sub-camp for the Neuengamme concentration camp in Hamburg.
