Dachau became one of the largest Concentration camps in Germany, a mere metropolis of death. It served as a prototype and model for other Nazi concentration camps. Established by the Nazis in March 1933, the Dachau concentration camp was “the first concentration camp for political prisoners” as Heinrich Himmler stated. It is located on the grounds of a former munitions factory near Dachau, about 16 kilometers (10 miles) northwest of Munich. Almost every community in Germany had members taken away to these camps. Newspapers continually reported the removal to concentration camps of the enemies of “the Reich” – what means opponents to the Nazi dictatorship.

In June 1945 the Munich Central Collecting Point was opened in the former Nazi Party Headquarters close to the Königsplatz downtown Munich. Central Collecting Points were established in Munich and Wiesbaden, to house and sort the thousands of works of art being found by Monuments Men in repositories across Southern Germany, and the Central Collecting Point in Munich was designated to primarily hold ERR (Einsatzstab Reichsleiter Rosenberg) loot, Hitler and Goering’s collections, and other masterpieces found in Berchtesgaden, Neuschwanstein and the Altaussee salt mine.

On august 6th 1932 Konrad Adenauer opened the first German Autobahn. The revolution in transportation made the term Autobahn known all over the world. At the opening only few vehicles could reach the top speed of 120 km/h. Today the German motorways are famous for the lack of speed limit. But motorways are very special in every country. Wide and crowded in the USA or new, long and also crowded in China, which since 2011 has the most motorways in the world.
