In it all, I think this was the worst. The execution wall.
The sculpture below is an artist impression of that famous photograph taken by the liberation forces,
a jumble of skeletal arms and legs.
The accommodation blocks were flattened by the Americans, they are now marked by white pebbles bordered by light grey bricks. As all of the Dachau work camp is now a memorial site, we saw many people carry flowers to the remnants of a particular block, lay their wreath, say a prayer then walk away.
a sense of the horror to come
A reinforcement of life.
