Visiting Dachau under the expertise of our guide Sonja has been one of the best experiences I have had. While I haven’t met one New Europe tour guide who wasn’t anything but excellent, Sonja took it to a new level.
Her respect and admiration for the survivors of the camp transcended to every member of the group. There was nothing cliché about her tour. She spoke with passion, conviction and took the time to ensure we understood the true significance of our Dachau experience. I am thankful for her wisdom and feel honoured I had the opportunity to learn from her and hopefully continue to spread some good in our world as I believe she is doing! “Enlightening, heartbreaking, informative, and life changing!” 5 out of 5 review, TripAdvisor, Jan, 2012
In March 1933, Heinrich Himmler ordered the construction of the one of Germany’s first concentration camps in a small town near Munich; Dachau. The first 5,000 prisoners were political enemies of the Nazi regime.
In the following years, other social, ethnic, and racial enemies were imprisoned as Dachau went on to become the only concentration camp to remain active during the entire Third Reich period (1933-1945). At the time of liberation, over 200,000 prisoners from more than 30 nations had been imprisoned there.
During the 1960’s, the Dachau memorial was founded to investigate their plight. On this 5-hour tour with memorial-accredited, native English speaking guides, you will explore what has become one of the most important centers of remembrance, contemplation, and learning in Germany today.
