The Holocaust is a vast subject. Where should you begin? My recommendation is that you start with a tour of Dachau, one of the first concentration camps, if not THE first.
My photo below shows the Arbeit macht Frei gate into the Dachau concentration camp.
I took the photo below on my first visit to Dachau in 1998. At that time, this was the tourist entrance into the former camp. You could not enter through the “Arbeit macht Frei gate” at that time.
The former Dachau camp is now inside the town of Dachau, which is very close to the city of Munich. There is an airport just outside the city of Munich, and you can take a bus from the airport, into the city of Munich, and then take a bus to Dachau.
You could stay in a hotel in Dachau, where you could start your Holocaust tour by going to the former Dachau camp, which is open to visitors every day of the week.
The site of the former Dachau camp now has a nice visitor’s center where you can start your Holocaust tour. Hitler would be turning over in his grave if he knew about this ultra modern building. Hitler once dreamed of being an architect.
You can read about the Dachau visitor’s center on my blog at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2013/11/17/visitors-center-at-dachau/
I have a large section about Dachau on my scrapbookpages.com website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/index.html
This section on my website is all about the Dachau gas chamber: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/GasChamber/Index.html
Please prepare yourself before going inside the Dachau gas chamber. You don’t want to laugh and get arrested for being a Holocaust denier. Yes, Germany has strict laws against Holocaust denial. If you get arrested, don’t come crying to me.
