Germany, facts and history in brief

Dachau
Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.


Dachau is an attractive city in southern Germany, in the federal state of Bavaria.
Located at 4815'N 1127'E, just 20 km away from Munich, it has become a popular housing area for people working in Munich, and now has roughly 40,000 inhabitants.
The town has a historic city center, with a castle built in the 18th century.

Dachau was founded in the 8th century, and was the home of many artists during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
The writer Ludwig Thoma was born there.

Dachau is best known for the proximity of the relatively well-preserved site of the infamous Dachau concentration camp, the first large-scale concentration camp in Germany, converted from an old gunpowder factory by the Nazi regime in 1933.

For the massacre committed by Americans, see Dachau Massacre.

While Sarolta and I were visiting Munich during our trip around Europe in 1978, we took time out to side track a bit and visit Dachau township and the former Concentration Camp.
