A Place Never to be Forgotten

Message

Ten miles northwest of Munich, Germany exists a place where the dreams of mothers and fathers are buried alongside their children. Where the souls of tens of thousands are forever present, united in the pain and brutality they endured during their last days and years on earth.

The Dachau Concentration Camp was the first camp established by the Nazis in 1933, and became the training ground, and model, for concentration camps throughout Germany, Austria and Poland during World War II. Nearly 190,000 people, mostly Jewish men and societal outcasts, were held in Dachau between the years 1933-1945, until its liberation by the 42nd Infantry Division of the U.S. Seventh Army on April 29, 1945.
