"Inside the crematorium building..." Dachau Things to Do Tip by mapakettle

Dachau Things to Do: 124 reviews and 253 photos

Be aware that the additional pictures show the ovens in great detail.

Over 200,000 registered prisoners went through the concentration camp at Dachau, and out of those, there were 31,951 registered deaths. I say registered, because many mass shootings of Soviet prisoners were never recorded, nor were the forced marches of prisoners to locations outside of Dachau's gates.

These ovens operated at peak efficiency, and the overflow was later found buried in mass graves. At no time were the ovens used in conjunction with gassing of prisoners.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
