Dachau. The first concentration camp, established in March 1933 in southern Germany, at the edge of the town of Dachau, northeast of Munich under Theodor Eicke, chief of all concentration camps. In 1942 a gas chamber was established in connection with medical experiments in which a few experimental gassings took place. Used mainly to incarcerate German political prisoners until late 1938, whereupon large numbers of Jews, Gypsies, Jehovah’s Witnesses, homosexuals, and other supposed enemies of the state and antisocial elements were sent. Nazi doctors and scientists, led by Sigmund Rascher, used many Dachau prisoners as guinea pigs for experiments determining the effects of sudden increases and decreases in atmospheric pressure on humans; studying the effects of freezing on humans; infecting prisoners with malaria; and testing prisoners for the effects of drinking seawater and starvation and more. During the war, construction began on a gas chamber, but it was never put into operation, although the crematoria were used. Dachau was the model and training center for SS-organized camps. During World War II the main camp was supplemented by more than 150 satellite camps using slave labor to manufacture military hardware for the German war effort. Dachau was liberated as a German military facility, not as a concentration camp, by American troops in April 1945.

Dachhase/Dachkaninchen. Roof rabbit. See also Balkonschwein.

Dachorganisaton der Filmschaffenden Deutschlands e.V. (DACHO) Umbrella Organization of German Filmmakers. Independent cinema association of German directors and actors disbanded by Goebbels in 1933, at which time many Jewish members and anti-Nazi members left Germany for Hollywood.
