ensign Dachau

When Elizabeth and I lived in Germany her dad came to visit us. As a Canadian veteran who was especially engaged in bloody fights in the Netherlands he wanted to see as much as possible of what was going on during the Nazi regime in Germany.
We lived close to Dachau and visited with him the "Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site". It was the first concentration camp that had been built as early as 1933.
The first prisoners came from a jail in Munich and were mostly political enemies of the Nazi regime.
I am not a researcher of history and I cannot say which figures of the captives and of the death rate are the correct ones.
But without any doubt such camps and how people were treated is something which should teach us a lesson and all humans should be ashamed of doing things like that.
There are so many publications available through the Internet which are certainly much more valuable than my impressions. I am against all the created hatred between people who even do not know each other.
Naturally, we toured also Dachau and had even a lunch there. Elizabeth's dad enjoyed his first Bavarian beer and a typical local speciality. He loved the beer but he was a little bit suspicious with the meal. I got the feeling he would have preferred a cheese burger.

Dachau - many thanks to Traveler100 and Wikipedia

Elizabeth and I were frequent visitors of Dachau.
During the last century, Dachau became an attraction for many famous German painters. Many of them moved to this city. They were inspired by the surrounding marsh and farmland.

The castle in Dachau

One attraction is a castle which was built in the 16 th century on top of a hill. Unfortunately major parts of it had been destroyed by the troops of Napoleon and at that time nobody had the money for the required repairs.
Use the link to the great web site about Napoleon - you can spend hours watching all the videos!

Watch a "censored" video about Dachau and the concentration camp:

Important note:

Search the Internet for some videos about the concentration camp for which I could not embed the code because of the sensitive graphic content.
