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.
