15 Memorial room
Currently more than 130 commemorative plaques and stones are in the memorial room at the end of the main exhibition. The room serves to remember individuals and groups imprisoned in the Dachau concentration camp. Private persons and institutions are able to donate plaques commemorating victims of the Dachau concentration camp.
In 2011, three terminals were installed in the memorial room that allow visitors to view the “Book of Remembrance for the Dead of the Dachau Concentration Camp” in digital and printed versions. The remembrance book gives the prisoners who died from the torture inflicted, the inhuman living conditions, or were murdered, their names again, enabling individual commemoration in dignity. Visitors can use the terminals to research the name, nationality, profession, place and date of birth as well as the date of death of the prisoners. The remembrance book contains the names of 33,205 dead. It has proven impossible to identify the names of 8,300 men and women killed in the Dachau concentration camp.
