Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site

Entrance to the camp

The Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site is located just outside of Munich, Germany. It is most definitely one place that everyone should visit in their life.

Although this place represents the horrible atrocities humans are capable of, it also represents hope and perseverance. This Memorial does a great job of educating people about the Holocaust.

It has some of the original structures still standing and has refurbished other areas to show visitors what it was like for people forced to live in these camps during the Holocaust. They have artifacts including personal journals written by prisoners and log books kept by Nazi soldiers. The most emotional part of the visit was walking through the gas chambers that killed millions of people. This Memorial holds strong historical significance and is a reminder of what can happen when people are intolerant.
