Dachau Concentration Camp

On our second day in Munich, we took a train a little bit out of town to see Dachau concentration camp. Dachau was the first concentration camp established by the Nazi Party. It opened in 1933 and held prisoners until they were liberated in 1945.

I don't really have any words that can illustrate what that experience was like, so hopefully the pictures I took can give you an idea of what it was like seeing the camp today. I will say that I was just overwhelmed with sadness and pain that humans, God's creations, had to endure what they did.
















This is a panorama of where the prisoners did role call, where some of the barracks were, and through the trees is the path that leads to the crematorium. 


Replicas of the beds.

To the right of the trees are concrete blocks to show where the barracks were. 












Over 43,000 people died at Dachau concentration camp. This last picture was so good to see after going throughout the camp. I'm thankful that there were people who were rescued and survived.
