Germany. Bayern state. The Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site. A tourist with a backpack reads the informations on the roll-call area where the prisoners were counted every morning and evening and assigned to their work details. Punishment measures were announced and carried out here publicly to intimidate the prisoners. The more the number of prisoners increased the longer and more exhausting the roll-call procedure became. Dead prisoners had to be brought to roll call and included in the count. 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
