In March 1933, only weeks after Adolf Hitler was appointed Reich Chancellor, a concentration camp for political prisoners was set up at Dachau, 20 kilometers north of Munich.
The camp served as a model for all Nazi concentration camps and as a "school of violence" for the SS men under whose command it operated. In the twelve years of its existence over 200.000 persons from all over Europe were imprisoned in Dachau and in numerous subsidary camps.
Georg Elser and the British agents, Best and Stevens, were incarcerated in the prison building know as the Bunker following their time spent at Sachsenhausen.
