On March 22, 1933, just a few weeks after the appointment of Adolf Hitler as Chancellor and the seizure of power through the Nazis, a concentration camp was built in Dachau near Munich. It served as a model for all later concentration camps and as a "school of violence" of the SS. In 1965 a memorial was erected in Dachau on the initiative of the survivors. It is a place of remembrance of the Casualties that where caused by the Third Reich in World War II. It is a cemetery to commemorate the jewish citizens and political prisoners who lost their lives at KZ Dachau. Finally, it is a Holocaust Memorial museum and place of continuous learning.
After a short tour through the 1200 years old Upper Bavarian market town of Dachau, you start the guided tour through the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial.
You will visit the outdoor area, the historic buildings and barracks as well as parts of the historical permanent exhibition. Afterwards, you will visit the newly remodeled memorial site at the former "SS-Schießplatz Hebertshausen", about two kilometers away.
