Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site

Visitors enter the camp through the prisoners' gate, over which you will read Arbeit macht frei ("Work brings freedom"). Two groups of huts have been rebuilt, enabling visitors to imagine daily life here in the camp which held 30,000 prisoners in 1944. On the main square, a monument erected by the international community, in addition to a Roman Catholic chapel, a Protestant church and a Jewish memorial, has been built. The area around the crematory ovens close to the camp has been laid out as a necropolis.
