  1. Survivors Mark Dachau Liberation 70 Years Later

    There may have been more prolific death factories, but Dachau, built in 1933, was the model for the camp network that murdered 6 million Jews and other undesirables according to the Nazis’ racist credo. Today 130 survivors and troops who liberated them in 1945 honored the 40,000 who perished there. German Chancellor Angela Merkel thanked survivors for recounting the “unending suffering that Germany inflicted on you,” and cautioned against forgetting the origins of such horrors, especially as anti-Semitism again threatens “the basic order of a free society.”
