A very detailed tour conducted by a WW2 historian.

I will give you a detailed objective tour of the site. Dachau was the only camp open for the whole duration of the Third Reich and was the training center for many of the people that were to become infamous in the following years, such as Rudolf Hoess (Future commandant of Auschwitz).

A broad range of different aspects of camp life are covered during its different periods of operation right through to its liberation in April 1945.

Over the 13 years I have been a Memorial guide I have met many ex-prisoners their families and the American soldiers that liberated the camp. I will relate their stories.

Thousands of people met their end here, often in a barbaric way. The relevance of the memorial today to future generations is a very important subject, as well as its relevance to the survivors, their families and the GIs who have a personal connection to the place.
