Concentration Camp Memorial

Local name: KZ-Gedenkstätte

Dachau Memorial Site is an institution depicting a former concentration camp, which was the first camp in Germany used to detain political prisoners. Visitors have the opportunity to learn more about the history of this place and the fate of World War II thanks to the memorabilia and accounts of the prisoners of the camp.

The museum's offer is mainly based on visiting historic buildings and rooms of the former camp. In addition, there is an archive and a library for visitors. The archive has many documents, photos, maps, recordings and videos. Most of these materials are accounts of former prisoners, documents of the camp administration and acts of post-war trials. You can also find newspaper clippings about concentration camps, the Holocaust, emigration, the resistance movement, Nazi post-war trials and compensation. The archive also maintains a register of prisoners at the Dachau camp, which currently contains data on approximately 200,000 people, or 90% of all victims. The museum library has over 14,000 works on Dachau and the subject of the Holocaust.
