Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site

View across the former Roll Call Ground with the long Wirtschaftsgebäude that contains the camp's exhibition. In front of the house you see the international memorial, initiated on 8th September 1968 as a reminder of the suffering and dying of prisoners in Dachau. The memorial, made by Yougoslav sculptor Glid Nandor, is about 330 ft long and 160 ft wide. A zigzag path leads downwards between two concrete walls. From below you have an excellent view on the bronze sculpture of intertwined skeletons (52 ft long and 20 ft high), symbolizing the passion of prisoners until their death. On my photo a class was guided through the monument.
