Giebułtów [ɡʲɛˈbuu̯tuf] (German: Gebhardsdorf) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Mirsk within Lwówek Śląski County, Lower Silesian Voivodeship, in south-western Poland, close to the Czech border. Giebułtów lies approximately 3 kilometres (2 mi) north-west of Mirsk, 23 km (14 mi) south-west of Lwówek Śląski, and 120 km (75 mi) west of the regional capital Wrocław.[1]

Before World War II, the town was located in the German region of Lower Silesia. This region was ceded to Poland in 1945 after the border shift.


During World War II Giebułtów was the location of the Nazi German slave labour camp called FAL Gebhardsdorf, one of nearly one hundred subcamps of the Gross-Rosen concentration camp system. The prisoners included 500 Jewish women from Poland and Hungary, who were transported after a selection at Auschwitz, to work for the airplane parts manufacturer Aerobau – Heinrich Lehmann KG in Gebhardsdorf / Isergebirge. They were sent on a death march westward on 18 January 1945.[2]
