    Commemorative ribbon for the 50th anniversary of Dachau concentration camp

    Overview

    Brief Narrative
    Blue and white striped embroidered ribbon, reminiscent of a concentration camp uniform issued in 1995 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the liberation of Dachau concentration camp by American troops on April 29, 1945. 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 and it had an active medical experiment program. Most of the prisoners were used as forced labor. Nearly 200,000 people were incarcerated at Dachau and nearly 20,000 inmates died there, although the exact number is not known.s
