Dachau Memorial Tours with "In their shoes"


dachau memorial tours with James BurgessMarch 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.
