The Holocaust today remains the great warning of history. The name alone brings up terrible images and shocking statistics. This seminar will examine the twelve-year history of the former Dachau Concentration Camp as we discuss its origins, daily life, and murder within the camp.

Within the Nazi framework that caused so much misery, Dachau Camp remains unique in that it was the first permanent camp for the Nazis and would become the model camp for all the others. Essentially, it was the blueprint of the Holocaust camp that all others, including Auschwitz, would later follow.

In this introductory seminar, we will examine the development of the Holocaust through its longest-serving camp, its dark history from birth, growth to liberation we can trace the Third Reich’s attitudes to its enemies and how increasingly radical and brutal they became. From the early years as a means to destroy political opposition within Germany to the influx of foreign slaves during the war to power the Nazi war economy and to the eventual building of a gas chamber and crematorium to murder their victims and hide the evidence of Nazi crimes.

Besides a general overview another aim will also be to look at daily life within the camp, what sort of work the prisoners were forced to do and individual stories from the victims who endured so much. We will also look at modern attitudes to the Holocaust and what it means today in the modern world.

Led by an expert on the Dachau Memorial site Tom Mills, this interactive seminar will examine the twelve-year history of Dachau. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased understanding of the Holocaust.

Tom Mills was born in Wolverhampton in the heart of England before studying History and Archaeology at Bangor University. Emerging with an MA he worked as an archaeologist and afterward a historic conservator for the National Trust. Moving to Munich in 2012 he began a career as a tour guide and many years later is still there.
