On April 29, 2011 the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site presented the result of an extensive research project, the Gedenkbuch für die Toten des Konzentrationslagers Dachau: years of research work has gone into compiling the names and other biographical data of those killed in the Dachau concentration camp and its subcamps for the memorial book. From a death toll far exceeding 40,000, more than 33,000 victims from almost 40 nations could now be named – far more than was to be expected on the basis of the originally known sources. For the descendants and compatriots of the dead this is an acknowledgment of great importance. A digital version of the memorial book can be consulted by all visitors at two media terminals in the commemoration room.
