A young man reads the informations on the camp prison, the so-called bunker, which was built during the new construction of the camp in 1937/38 and replaced earlier prison buildings. It was used above all to punish prisoners and to extort confessions. Also imprisoned here in the last few years of the war were some of the so-called special prisoners who as hostages were provided with better conditions.View into the passageway of the bunker. 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
