Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site is inviting well-known filmmakers to come up with ideas for a new documentary film on the history of Dachau concentration camp. A panel of experts will advise on the choice of a suitable film concept. The new documentary should provide visitors to the Memorial Site with a vivid overview of the historical facts, taking into account the latest historical knowledge and contemporary methods of communication. The film should be design so as to be suitable for viewing both as preparation for a tour of the grounds and the exhibitions, and as a review afterward. The content of the documentary should convey basic knowledge of the historical development and the topographical extent of Dachau concentration camp, as well as today’s Memorial Site. This basic knowledge must be integrated into the context of general historical processes. Furthermore, key basic themes regarding the history of concentration camps should addressed. The focus should be on videos of contemporary witnesses that describe the individual experiences of the prisoners at Dachau concentration camp.
