March 1933, not long after Adolf Hitler came to power, one of the first concentration camps was opened near Dachau, a town NW of Munich. Over the next 12 years more than 200 000 people were incarcerated in Dachau, which became synonymous with the suffering, oppression, misery and death under the brutal watch of Heinrich Himmler's SS. Dachau was known as the "school of terror", the training grounds for the SS and became the model for all other camps throughout the German-occupied territories, resulting in the death and suffering of countless innocent victims at the hands of the tyrannical Nazi regime.
This authorized tour of the Dachau Memorial Site traces the history of the former concentration camp and offers insight into the reasons behind the injustices as well as the circumstances under which the inmates suffered.
Our 5 hour tour including transport to and from Dachau Concentration Camp will cover all areas accessible to the public and the following.
