Dachau Concentration Camp

This post is dedicated to the victims of the Holocaust. Never again.

Dachau Concentration Camp, located about 15 kilometres outside of Munich, was the first of the tens of thousands of horrifying concentration camps that the Nazis created during their reign.

The camp was in use for 12 years, from 1933 to 1945, until it was liberated by US troops in April 1945.
