Barbara Distel was the Director of the Dachau Memorial Museum since 1975 and widely acclaimed as the pre-eminent authority on the history of Dachau, Barbara Distel oversees archival materials dealing with the lives-and deaths-of more than 200,000 persons imprisoned in this first of the German concentration camps (1933-1945).
