18 Protestant Church of Reconciliation
The initiative to build a Protestant church came from Dutch survivors, supported by the World Council of Churches. The Evangelical Church in Germany built the Protestant Church of Reconciliation, consecrated on April 30 1967 by the regional bishop of Bavaria, Hermann Dietzfelbinger. The dedication service was led by the retired church president and former Dachau prisoner, Martin Niemöller.
The architect Helmut Striffler designed the building with the church and meeting room to represent a counterpoint to the symmetrical, angular structures and layout of the former concentration camp.
