I remember Dachau
KZ-Allach, the forgotten concentration camp near Dachau
From 1935 the Bayerische Motoren Werke AG established a new factory, targeting the arms industry, 10 kilometers north of Munich on the northern edge of the Allacher Forst under the name of BMW- Werk- Allach or BMW Flugmotorenbau GmbH. (Aircraft engines).
In 1943 BMW already made plans to bring part of the arms industry underground beside the existing production halls. This happened in connection to a bombardment on the establishment of BMW in Munich in the spring of 1943.
Speech by Dr. Max Mannheimer
"Every day we see in the media, new images
of horror from the various crises and War zones.
No hot-spot is far enough away anymore that it
could not touch us and cause fear and worry."
