Germany. Bayern state. The Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site. A woman takes a picture with a small digital camera through a gate. The camp fencing ( partly reconstructed in 1965) was made-up of grass, strips, ditches with an electrified barbed-wire fence and the camp wall. SS men guarded the camp grounds from seven towers. If a prisoner stepped onto the grass strip, he was shot at. On march 22, 1933, the first concentration camp was opened in Dachau by the Nazis. It became a model for all later concentration camps established under the control of the SS men and the Third  Reich. © 2007 Didier Ruef
