DVDkonzentrationslagerDachauConcentration Camp Dachau

DVD Documentary; (PAL or NTSC)
On 22 March 1933, a few weeks after Adolf Hitler was appointed as Reich Chansellor, a concentration camp for political prisoners was set in Dachau.
This camp served as a model for all later concentration camps and as a "school of violence" for the SS men under whose command it stood. During the twelve years of its existence, more than 200,000 people from all over Europe were imprisoned here and in the numerous subsidiary camps. More than 41.500 of them died. On April 29, 1945, American troops liberated the survivors.

Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site

A Tour

The brochure provides information for visitors to the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site. It guides readers through the grounds and exhibitions in twenty stations, with a further six stations devoted to important locations near the Memorial Site. Based on the latest research and written in a clear and succinct style, the brochure follows the history of the Dachau concentration camp up until 1945 and the subsequent uses of the grounds from 1945 through to the present day. Numerous photographs, some of them historical, as well as drawings and accounts by survivors complement the text. Overview layouts enable visitors to locate different relicts of the concentration camp and places of remembrance. Aerial photographs allow connections to be made between the historical grounds of the concentration camp and today’s Memorial Site. Not only an invaluable aid for a structured exploration of the Memorial Site, the brochure is also ideal for planning and reviewing a visit.
