Remembering Dachau in times of covid 19
a digital monument
29 april 2020. Message of the Comité International de Dachau.
In 12 years of existence, the Dachau camp has been the symbol and the school of the concentration camp universe of repression and negation of Man.
We remember Dachau 'am Leitenberg'
The Dachau concentration camp was liberated on April 29, 1945. Every year we commemorate the liberation from Dachau. On the former concentration camp site, but also on the Leitenberg and the forest cemetery ‘Waldfriedhof’, the final resting place of many victims.
To remember what happened, is the first step to prevent it from happening again.
A virtual commemoration
A few weeks ago, as you probably know, the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site, the Bavarian Memorial Foundation and the Comité International de Dachau (CID) had to take the hard decision to cancel all the commemorative events connected with the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Dachau Concentration Camp. This cancellation also relates to the central commemorative event, which had been planned for Sunday, May 3rd, 2020.
