    69 years ago today, KZ-Dachau was liberated. American forces entered the main camp complex for the first time, ending the longest period for which any of the major concentration camps existed - over 12 years. For many, the liberation came too late - it is estimated a minimum of 30,000 died within the Dachau system, yet for the tens of thousands present when the camp was eventually liberated, an end to their torment had come at last.

    Snow was indeed on the ground in parts of the camp Matty. Some of the images of the masses of corpses that were left in the rail cars show that it had snowed not long before the arrival of the US forces.

    Was today also the day the 'band of brothers' concentration camp was liberated?
    I cant recall seeing snow in the Kaufering 4 liberation photos or in the miniseries come to think of it.

    Yes, several of the Kaufering camps were indeed liberated at the same time.
