Video messages

On April 29, 1945 soldiers of the U.S. Army liberated the prisoners of the Dachau concentration camp. For many prisoners a new life began.

The Dachau Memorial Site took this anniversary as an opportunity to ask survivors to depict their memories of the day of liberation in a video message. Nine survivors from different countries give their accounts of the days around liberation and their own life stories at The video messages are subtitled in German and English.
