Dachau opened in March 1933, and was the first concentration camp established by the Nazis in Germany. It served as a prototype and model for other Nazi concentration camps that followed. The prisoners in the photograph were mostly likely killed before the camp was liberated.
On April 29, 1945 Dachau was surrendered to the American Army by SS- Sturmscharfuhrer Heinrich Wicker. As U.S. troops neared the camp, they found more than 30 railroad cars filled with additional bodies brought to Dachau. Note the word "POLAK' is written on the chest of a dead Polish prisoner. Poles constituted the largest ethnic group in the Dachau camp during the war.
