Words Cannot Describe The Terrible Systemic Murder At Dachau By The Nazis

Work Will Make You Free - on the front gate of Dachau.

The Crematory Oven at Dachau

Just outside of Munich is the very first Nazi Concentration Camp - Dachau. It was a model camp set up by the Nazi SS - to be an example for all the other camps. The only good thing I could say at about the camp was the free admission. It is such a horrible idea - and unfortunately is was so darn successful. Hitler's Final Solution was simple - you would imprison anyone your did not like for whatever reason. Then you would use them as free labor until they were sick or exhausted. Finally - you would just kill them - bury them - and pretend they were never ever alive.

Lulu visited the research library at Dachau
It is hard to complain about being one of six senior citizens living in a 2 bedroom - 1 bath apartment for a week - when we just visited concentration camp barracks where 50 prisoners were squeezed into a similar size space - with no heat or running water. It is a miracle that anyone survived that insanity.

The sign on the gas chambers says - showers

These chambers fumigated the clothing
