Dachau

ARBEIT MACHT FREI means work makes you free or one grants liberty by working. It's a well-known slogan that was placed at the entrance of Nazi concentration camp. During Easter Holiday, i visited one concentration camp in Germany in Dachau, nearby Munich. "Dachau Konzentrationslager" was the first concentration camp establised in Germany in 1933. There are a lot of concentration camps all over Europe. Well you dun have to visit all the camps. but if you happen to be in Europe and you have the chance to go to such camps, i think you should not miss it, because travelling in my opinion is not about sight-seeing, or looking only at the good side but also the history and the so called dark side of the places.

For more pictures of the Dachau Concentration Camp, visit my flickr album.


Over its twelve years as a concentration camp, the Dachau administration recorded the intake of 206,206 prisoners and 31,951 deaths.
