Handcrafted wooden double dished set etched Dachau KZ

Object | Accession Number: 2004.705.8

Handcrafted wooden set with two shallow bowls attached to a circular handle etched Dachau KZ to commemorate Dachau concentration camp. Dachau was the first concentration camp established by the Nazi government in 1933, originally for political prisoners. Over time, other groups were interned at Dachau, such as Jehovah's Witnesses, Roma, homosexuals, repeat criminal offenders, and Jews. The SS used it as the training center for SS concentration camp guards. It was divided into two parts: the concentration camp and the crematorium for the disposal of the bodies of inmates who died at the camp. The camp was liberated by United States forces on April 29, 1945.
