70th Anniversary of the Liberation of the Dachau Concentration Camp

The seventieth anniversary of liberation will be of larger scope than usual. Many events are planned, all of which will be strongly marked by the idea of meeting together. A large number of survivors and former liberators from the USA will be attending the main celebration, to be held on Sunday, May 3, 2015. Along with the Minister-President of Bavaria, Horst Seehofer, German Chancellor Angela Merkel will be the first Chancellor to give a speech while in office at a commemoration of Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site. The following celebration, which Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site has been organizing for more than twenty years in cooperation with the Förderverein für internationale Jugendbegegnung und Gedenkstättenarbeit, will be largely devoted to a dialog with the survivors.
