Samaan aikaan toisaalla...
Nuorisokuoro Diskantti keikkailee Saksassa Munchenissä. Päivä alkoi vierailulla keskitysleirissä Dachaussa. Se hiljensi meidän kaikkien mielet. Illalla laulettiin Puchheimin kirkossa ja vietettiin aikaa paikallisten nuorten kanssa. #Diskantti#kuoromatka#dachauconcentrationcamp
Spent the day visiting Dachau concentration camp. This was one of the very first concentration camps used in the Holocaust. It's one thing to read about it but another to walk the same path where over 30,000 men, women and children lost their lives. A solemn reminder to love your fellow man.
Visiting the Dachau concentration camp was an extremely sobering experience. Approximately 206,000 men were held there during Hitler’s occupation. Walking through the fake shower room that they rigged as a gas chamber (which was luckily not used before America stormed in), was chilling. The crematory connected to it was indeed used over the years. They would force prisoners to work the cremation ovens, and then kill them after 4 weeks, so there was less likelihood of them informing other prisoners of their inevitable fate. It’s quite humbling to be reminded that your own day to day aches, pains & anxieties are truly nothing in light of how you could be suffering. •

#dachau is a town that is home to the #dachauconcentrationcamp . This was the Concentration camp that the other concentration camps were modelled upon. People were dehumanised, tortured, killed, starved and had horrible medical experiments done to them. The world was told that it was an effective and nice work camp. But seeing prisoners who looked like skin and bone, some locals of Dachau started to doubt the Nazi propoganda.

Dachau - the first of the Nazi-era concentration camps (1933-1945)
Voi che vivete sicuri
nelle vostre tiepide case,
voi che trovate tornando a sera
il cibo caldo e i visi amici:
considerate se questo è un uomo,
che lavora nel fango,
che non conosce pace,
che lotta per mezzo pane,
che muore per un sì o per un no.
Considerate se questa è una donna
senza capelli e senza nome,
senza più forza di ricordare,
vuoti gli occhi e freddo il grembo
come una rana d’inverno.
Meditate che questo è stato:
vi comando queste parole.
Scolpitele nel vostro cuore,
stando in casa andando per via,
ripetetele ai vostri figli.
O vi si sfaccia la casa,
la malattia vi impedisca
i vostri nati torcano il viso da voi.
"In Dachau, as in other Nazi camps, German physicians performed medical experiments on prisoners, including high-altitude experiments using a decompression chamber, malaria and tuberculosis experiments, hypothermia experiments, and experiments testing new medications. Prisoners were also forced to test methods of making seawater potable and of halting excessive bleeding.
Hundreds of prisoners died or were permanently disabled as a result of these experiments."... .

“El trabajo los hará libres” dice el lema que los nazis colocaron en las rejas de entrada del Campo de Concentración de Dachau. Lo había pensado mucho y había decidido no visitar ninguno de estos lugares donde se llevó a cabo el Holocausto. Sentía que no podría soportarlo, me afecta mucho. Sin embargo, ayer me di cuenta de que no debía voltear la cabeza y mirar hacia otro lado, como hicieron miles, millones, cuando un régimen decidió encerrar a los que pensaban distinto. O cuando puso una estrella amarilla en el brazo de un ser humano y lo marcó como persona de última categoría, que debía ser exterminada. Así que hoy tomé un tren y llegué a Dachau, el campo más antiguo, que sirvió como modelo a los demás y donde se entrenaron los miembros de la SS en la ignominia y la tortura. Funcionó desde 1933 hasta 1945. Sus primeros prisioneros fueron los que criticaron a Hitler y su Nacional Socialismo. Luego llegaron los comunistas, los escritores, los artistas y los homosexuales. Le siguieron los judíos, los llamados “gitanos”, los miembros del clero, los prisioneros de guerra rusos y un largo etcétera. El crematorio no se daba abasto y construyeron otro, con cámara de gas al lado. Ver todo esto fue realmente muy doloroso y las imágenes me acompañarán de por vida, pero el proceso de memoria es indispensable. Dachau visibiliza a las víctimas, las identifica, las individualiza cuando es posible y cuando no profundiza en ese anonimato. Pero sobre todo nos pide que no las olvidemos. Y el monumento nos arenga: “Nunca más”. Así sea. #eurotrip#alemania#germany#baviera#bayern#dachau#campodeconcentracion#dachauconcentrationcamp#dachaumemorial#nazi#genocidio#holocausto#nuncamas#neveragain

.. "The number of prisoners incarcerated in Dachau between 1933 and 1945 exceeded 188,000. The number of prisoners who died in the camp and the subcamps between January 1940 and May 1945 was at least 28,000, to which must be added those who perished there between 1933 and the end of 1939, as well as an uncounted number of unregistered prisoners. It is unlikely that the total number of victims who died in Dachau will ever be known."...... .

The territory of Dachau Concentration Camp, that used to be initially as the place of freedom limitation for political prisoners, but later had become a place where the life was taken away from more than thousands of people between 1933 to 1945..... 😔
🇧🇷 Acho que este foi o pior lugar, o mais triste que estive em toda a minha vida, mas extremamente necessário e recomendável.
Este é o portão de entrada do campo de concentração de Dachau, um dos principais campos nazistas.
Senti a energia desse lugar no momento que nos aproximávamos. Ao cruzar esse portão, pude sentir a história que Dachau carrega e isso é de uma importância imensa pra mim.
A gente precisa sempre se lembrar do que o ser humano é capaz para ajudar a impedir que barbáries, como foi o holocausto, não se repitam nunca mais!
Mais detalhes salvos nos highlights. .
🇮🇪 I think this was the worst, saddest place I've ever been in my life, but extremely necessary to visit and recommended.
This is the main gate of Dachau concentration camp, one of the main Nazi camps.
I could feel the energy of this place as we were approaching it. As I crossed this gate, I could feel the history that Dachau carries and this is of paramount importance to me.
We must always remember what a human being is capable to do, so we can help preventing barbarism, such as the Holocaust, from ever happening again!
More details saved on highlights (all in Portuguese).
What started out as an old ammunition factory for Germany in WW1, turned into a place of complete horror as thousands of people were taken from their families and were either shot or gassed by the Nazis in WW2. Dachau was the first Nazi concentration camp and was originally used for political opponents, but as time went on it became an integral part of the Holocaust. It opened 2 days before Hitler became dictator and was liberated a day before Hitler committed suicide, an ironic end to the Third Reich.
Day 4: I went to the Dachau Concentration Camp located right outside of Munich. It was a humbling and enlightening experience learning about the history of the camp, what it was used for, the acts that were committed to those sent there, and the ways that the prisoners kept hope and secretly communicated with the outside world.
I gained a broader perspective and a greater appreciation for history as it is what we base our decisions about the future.
Dachau concentration camp in Bayern, Germany - Picture 1
The concentration camp Dachau existed from 22 March 1933 until its liberation by soldiers of the 7th US Army on 29 April 1945. It was the first uninterrupted concentration camp and became one of the most famous concentration camps. It was in operation for twelve years
Of the total of at least 200,000 Dachau prison inmates, about 41,500 died.
Since 1965, the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial has been located on the site. I was there in the year 2006 and in the next days I will show you some pictures of it.
But beware - some of the pictures are very depressing.
At first I will show you one of the barracks in which the prisoners lived. One of them is still in the Original.

Photography 4 Humanity is seeking photographers with incredible images like this that show the triumphs and tribulations of human rights around the world.
Shutter Island scene shows Dachau liberation reprisals.
Following the liberation of the Dachau concentration camp, American troops felt an urge to personally punish the camp's guards. The troops were so outraged at the horrific scenes at Dachau, where tens of thousands of prisoners were killed. They lined up and executed a number of SS members who had already surrendered.
