Dachau was first mentioned in 805, which makes it much older than Munich. Because of its special landscape the town was internationally famous as an art colony. Since 1933 the name stands for the terror of National Socialism. After the second World War the representatives of Dachau fought against all attempts of processing the past. But thanks to various initiatives, today there is a vivid culture of remembrance in Dachau, which includes the International Youth Meeting.
