This past summer I had the opportunity to visit the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site in Munich. Over 200,000 people were imprisoned at the camp in its twelve years of existence, and it was the first regular concentration camp established by the Nazis in Germany.
I teared up when I saw photographs of former prisoners and read their biographies and descriptions of their treatment in the museum exhibit. There's something powerful about walking through historical buildings, especially where such horrific events occurred. Below are some snapshots.
