Wordless Wednesdays - Dachau Concentration Camp Germany

These photos are from my visit to Dachau Concentration Camp in Germany last November.  This was a place of almost total silence.  People spoke to each other in whispers when they spoke.  The place had such an eerie feel about it.  This includes pictures of the crematoriums and the showers.  So incredibly sad!

  1. That is incredibly sad. I get sick when I hear people say the Haulocaust never happened. I still have family there. Glad you posted!

    1. I think it is one of the saddest places I have ever been, but I am glad I went. You don't leave as the same person you went in as.

    1. I think you will be glad you did. You will also be very sad that the place ever existed.

  5. Horrible horrible time in history, one that needs to be remembered by all forever. Humans do terrible things, and for the folks who say it didn't happen...beyond my comprehension. Being there has to be an experience that will stay with you forever.

    1. Yes there is such a feeling there that leaves with you. It makes you want to make sure something like that ever happens again.

  6. I didn't even realize any of the concentration camps were open for visiting now. I visited the Holocaust Museum in DC, and that was an emotional place, difficult to look at everything.

    1. I'm not sure. I couldn't figure out how to find the whole list. It didnt seem to be on the last few. Your list of following should tell you. They are alphabetical.

  8. OMG, I have 2 great great uncles I never met, who died there. Also one of their wives and their 16 yr old daughter Sara. I found this out through my genealogy a few years back. I have to go there one day to piece it all together.

    1. I hope you make it there, having family members who died there makes it so much more personal.

  9. I just could not bring myself to go there. Too unbearably tragic. :(

    1. Tragic, yet unforgettable. I am glad I went. II had read about the concentration camps and I needed to see it first hand. I didn't have any family die there, but I think we are all connected, so it affects all of us.
