From Munich to Dachau

Searching for lost stories

Both the city of Munich and the Dachau concentration camp were of special significance for the Nazis. At the Munich Documentation Center and at the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site we will find out more about former prisoners.  

It was in Munich that the rise of the Nazi movement began after World War I that was eventually to culminate in the establishment of a dictatorship. The Dachau concentration camp built in 1933 became the model for all later concentration camps. We will spend two days looking at the history of the two places and how they were connected. We will visit the Munich city center and the site of the former concentration camp in Dachau. We will learn about the persecution of political opponents of the Nazi regime and find out more about former prisoners.  

A building stands behind a fence in the fog. In front of it is a wall and a large open space.
