Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site Tour

The Dachau concentration camp was installed in 1933 and regarded as "model camp" for all other concentration camps by the National Socialists.
Today, a memorial is giving visitors a chance to learn of the atrocities that prisoners had to endure.

Learn about history as we guide you through the former camp, visiting historical buildings and modern reconstructions, and parts of the permanent exhibition.
One of the central questions that we will be dealing with is "What does all of this this history have to do with us who are living today?".
