Germany. Bayern state. The Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site. A young boy plays with a stone. He is alone and stands among the former location of the other 32 baracks which are marked by foundations. The ground plan of the camp, still recognizable today and characterized by its symmetrical alignment and functional divisions, was also used in almost all other concentration camps.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
