Liberation of Dachau


This day in history:

Dachau concentration camp is liberated from Nazi German control by American soldiers after 12 years of operation.

At least 30,000 prisoners died while being held inside and more than estimated 200,000 people were interned at one point or another within the camp.  Exact figures will never be known.

April 29, 1945 - 67 years ago today.

I visited Dachau last year. Our guide told us it was not a death camp. Imagine that. Sanitizing the facts.
