Reconstructed Dachau Barrack

View along the wall of a reconstructed Barrack at the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site. The memorial site has just re-constructed two of the 34 Barracks - all the others had been torn down right after the war due to health reasons. The memorial site has left the foundations of the Barracks, however, giving the visitors an impression of the size of the camp.

Another photo of a Dachau Barrack, this time with visitors standing in front of an information poster. It is good to see that (at least some) young people actually do care about our not-so-distant history.
