What is the Dachau tour about?
On the morning of April 29th 1945 a Nazi Concentration Camp named Dachau was liberated by the U.S. army just 15 kilometres from Munich. In the course of its 12 year history, over 200,000 people from over 30 different nations were imprisoned there Over 40,000 people were murdered there.
On this officially authorized Dachau tour we will attempt to answer this vital question. Not in an attempt to close this chapter of history, but rather to strive to lay bare how important it is to explore this history and, crucially, learn from it.
The Dachau Concentration Camp was in operation from 1933 to 1945, thus becoming the only Concentration Camp to encompass the 12 years of the Third Reich. It became a vital tool of Nazi oppression, acting as the model camp and the so-called school of terror.
This Dachau tour will focus on the 12 years of the concentration camps existence using personal accounts from survivors, taking advantage of museum displays and of course the buildings and grounds themselves. We discuss what may have led to Hitler coming to power and the legacy left today in order to gain a fuller understanding of this painful history.
