New staff at the Dachau Memorial Site

Mathilda Schlosser is 19 and comes from near Karlsruhe. Her interest in political and historical subjects motivated her to take up her voluntary year of social service at the Dachau Memorial Site. Before beginning her university studies she wishes to do something useful and contribute to the commemorative work in Dachau.

Laura Volk is 20 and comes from near Hanover. She also began her voluntary year of social service at the Memorial Site in September 2015, having become interested in history and National Socialism while still at school. She believes that there is still a great deal of research that needs to be done in this area. She hopes that her voluntary year at Dachau will help her to find out more about National Socialism

Both of the social year volunteers regularly accompany the Dachau survivor Abba Naor to contemporary witness talks at different schools and guide visitor groups through the grounds of the Dachau Memorial Site.
