Dachau. Until the Nazi’s takeover of Germany, it was a small town with an artist colony. In 1933, the Nazi’s would forever link Dachau with their reign of terror. Dachau was more than a concentration camp. It was the master plan for all other concentration camps. Like many visitors to Dachau, I arrived via the U-Bahn train station from the city of Munich. I was then planning on taking a bus to the camp.
