Fort VII w Poznaniu właściwie KL Posen – niemiecki nazistowski obóz zagłady utworzony na terenie Fortu VII Twierdzy Poznań. Działający w latach 1939-1945, kolejno jako obóz koncentracyjny, więzienie policyjne Gestapo oraz obóz przejściowy (niem. Durchgangslager).
Na terenie obozu poniosło śmierć ok. 20 tysięcy Wielkopolan. Uwięzieni w nim Polacy byli rozstrzeliwani, torturowani, wieszani, zrzucani ze schodów lub umierali z powodu ciężkich warunków panujących w celach więziennych.

PL

Fort VII, officially Konzentrationslager Posen (later renamed), was a Nazi concentration camp set up in Poznań in occupied Poland during World War II, located in one of the 19th-century forts which ringed the city. According to different estimates, between 4,500 and 20,000 people, mostly Poles from Poznań and the surrounding region, died while imprisoned at the camp.
In mid November 1939 the camp was renamed as a Gestapo prison and a transit camp (Geheime Staatspolizei Staatspolizeileitstelle Posen. Übergangslager – Fort VII).
After the war the building was used as a storage facility by the Polish army. Plans were made in 1976 to turn the site into a museum in memory of the victims of the camp. The museum opened on 13 August 1979, and is called Muzeum Martyrologii Wielkopolan Fort VII ("Fort VII Museum of the Wielkopolska Martyrs"). The museum is open for entrance (mon - closed; tue-fri 10-17; sat-sun 10-15)
