1 May 2016
For a few months Jean-Michel Thomas replaced Pieter Dietz de Loos as chairman of the international Dachau Commitee (CID) .
Time to ask Jean-Michel Thomas to introduce himself bij answering some questions .
"We have to stay vigilant in the face of misinformation! We must never forget, that Dachau was a camp for the political resistance. First, German political prisoners and members of the resistance were detained, tortured and killed. Then came political opponents from all over Europe. Three quarters of the prisoners were members of the resistance, political deportees."
