Description: 8 Volunteers: Every summer since 1983, Dachau has hosted an international youth exchange with around 100 young people from over 20 countries. You can find more information about the camp here: http://www.jugendbegegnung-dachau.de/ In 1933, Heinrich Himmler opened one of the first Nazi concentration camps in Dachau. During the Second World War, the prison conditions deteriorated more and more because the camp was completely overcrowded and the prisoners were provided with less and less food, but had to do forced labor for the armaments industry. In total, more than 206,000 people were imprisoned there, of whom about 41,500 did not survive.

Type of Work: As part of this meeting, the SCI volunteers take part in various workshops with questions on the history of the Dachau concentration camp and National Socialism, and also make references to current developments. The focus is on the study part, but there are also excursions, trips and parties.
