The Comité International de Dachau is very happy with the recovery of the concentration-camp door that was stolen two years ago.
The CID congratulates all those involved in the recovery of the door. We also appreciate the international condemnation about the desecration of this important learning ground of the national socialist concentrationcamp system.
