War Memorial at John F. Kennedy Plaza

Strasse der KZ-Opfer curves around to JFK Plaza where you will see a war memorial designed by Abraham Borenstein for the Dachau '95 project. It is located on the north side of the intersection of Friedenstrasse and Sudetenlandstrasse. Near this spot on April 29, 1945, American soldiers in the 45th Thunderbird division first saw the abandoned "death train" with the corpses of 2,310 prisoners who had been evacuated from Buchenwald three weeks before and didn't make it to the camp alive.
