The Bavarian Memorial Foundation

The Bavarian Memorial Foundation is accountable for the Dachau and Flossenbürg Concentration Camp Memorial Sites. Established by the Bavarian Parliament in 2003, the foundation’s main duties are:

  • maintaining and managing the historical sites
  • enabling visits to the historical authentic places, their exhibitions and special exhibitions
  • keeping the memory of the victims’ suffering alive
  • creating environments of learning for future generations
  • supporting the historical and political education in schools, youth centres and other educational institutions
  • collecting, recording and archiving the accounts from victims, historical objects and artefacts as well as relevant literature
  • researching and making documents accessible to the public
  • publications on outcomes of research
  • co-operations with other institutions and organisations with similar objectives within Germany and abroad

Further major tasks of the foundation are the maintenance of the concentration camp graveyards as well as the subcamps of the former Dachau and Flossenbürg Concentration Camps - bringing these into the focus of public attention.

The Bavarian Memorial Foundation understands itself as an institution in an international context, whose work aims to set an example for co-operation and reconciliation in Europe.
