International Memorial built in 1968

This Memorial, with its sculpture representing the horror of the emaciated bodies of the dead victims of the Nazis at the Dachau Concentration Camp, was unveiled in 1968 in front of the center portion of the operations building, now the Museum. The Museum photo exhibit shows a picture of this building, when the camp was in operation, with a Nazi slogan painted on the roof which reads "There is one way to freedom. Its milestones are: obedience, zeal, honesty, order, cleanliness, temperance, truth, sense of sacrifice and love for the Fatherland." The same slogan decorated buildings at other sites as they were added to the Nazi concentration camp system.
