I've visited Dachau and it's a very intense experience. It's hard to put into words my personal experience. I will say it was one of the most important travel experiences of my life.Agreed. Have been there twice. The first visit, I went alone at age 27, on a bus full of Germans. Not a tour, just a bus from Munich to Dachau. We arrived mid-afternoon, so time was limited. Everyone seemed brusque and unhelpful, including the guards. By the time I entered, I was feeling very alone, vulnerable and scared. Dachau only magnified the feelings. Wow. What an experience.The second time just happened to be the 40th anniversary of the prison's liberation. The four of us were unaware of the date, but it was interesting in that it appeared to be just a regular visitor day with only a sign pointing out the significance. This time I took longer to study the great sculpture titled "Never Again," and spent more time wandering the grounds and contemplating. Another deeply moving experience.Chili
