From Dachau to Checkpoint C
From Dachau to Checkpoint C

Charlie's checkpoint was the name of the most famous crossing point of the Berlin Wall between East and West Berlin during the Cold War. It now serves as a tourist attraction in the Dalem district of Berlin.

The concentration camp, founded in March 1933, was the first to be set up by the Nazis. The first political prisoners of the Nazi Party were transferred and imprisoned here for the first time. However, the concentration, torture and extermination of many sections of the population who were considered dangerous to the regime soon began.

Immediately after the war, the Americans used Dachau to imprison Nazis and SS men.
Today, the Dachau Camp has been turned into a monument.
