Information on the documentary “The Dachau Concentration Camp 1933-1945” (1969)

Commissioned by the Comité International de Dachau (the international committee of prisoners), the film was made in 1969. After more than forty years, the film no longer reflects the current state of research; for example, much of the numerical information is outdated. The documentary therefore needs to be viewed as a historical source: it tells the story of the Dachau concentration camp from the perspective of the prisoners’ committee based on the level of knowledge in 1969.
