The Holocaust: Dachau & Sachsenhausen

Whilst Hitler sought the answers to his "Jewish problem", more and more centres of containment sprung up throughout Nazi occupied Europe. Two such camps were Dachau and Sachsenhausen, and although perhaps not such recognisable names as Auschwitz, they were no less crucial in the persecution and extermination of the European Jews. Under the watchful eye of Heinrich Himmler, head of the SS and Hitler's right hand man, a series of containment, transit and death camps were built within Europe, to systematically cleanse all those people considered inferior by the Third Reich. With the liberation of these two camps in April 1945, the true extent of man's cruelty to his fellow man would be revealed; the untold dead, inhumane treatment and squalid conditions would be laid bare for the entire world to see.
