KZ-Gedenkstätte Dachau (Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site)

In 1933 the Nazis opened the first concentration camp in Dachau near Munich. More than 40.000 captives lost their lives there. To this day the Dachau concentration camp is an epitome of Nazi terror, inhumanity and unspeakable suffering. The museum and memorial site not only deal with the tragic and horror of this place but also explains how the difficult legacy of the Nazi past has been dealt with since the end of WW II.
