During an acclamation day on a recent trip to Germany I took a drive to the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial. There are no words to describe what I saw or how I felt, so I will do my best with photos.
A video intro.
If these walls could talk.
These white walls hid the atrocities of what took place inside from the townspeople, many of whom sent care packages to the “workers” in the “labor camp.”
The gate to hell.
More than 180,000 people passed through the gates of Dachau. That is more than 10x the number of people who live in my hometown.
Work makes you free.
The maintenance building.
A view from the memorial.
Where the barracks once stood.
Ruins of the 30 Dachau barracks.
For 40,000+, the barracks was their last home.
Take a moment to reflect.
The crematorium and gas chamber.
