Nearly 70 years after the end of World War II, images depicting the Nazi horror continue to emerge. The Vintage Everyday website posted images and one video clip documenting the Dachau concentration camp after it was liberated by the allied forces in April 29, 1945.

 

The website did not specify the photos' source or the exact date they were taken. They were later posted by the Daily Mail's website which quoted an expert who confirmed that the images had indeed been taken after the camp was liberated.

"French and Yugoslav flags can also be seen and it is highly unlikely the Nazis would have adorned their camp with the flags of other nations," he said.


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 

"The pictures appear to be quite similar to others taken by the US forces who liberated the camp."

Established in March 1933, just two months after Hitler became Chancellor, Dachau was the first Nazi concentration camp.

 

By the end of the year it housed 4,800 political prisoners, mainly communists, social democrats and union officials.

 

In the 12 years that followed, other "undesirables", such as homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, gypsies, criminals and mainly Jews were sent there.

 

Dachau would become the prototype for the thousands of concentration camps that were built across Germany during the Nazi era. The camp layout and daily routine was widely copied.
