Speech of  CID President Pieter Dietz de Loos

 "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."
