Death Camps Consider Charging Admission

September 2007
Military History;Sep2007, Vol. 24 Issue 6, p11
The article reports on the prospect of having to demand entry fees at Germany's former Nazi concentration camps due to funding shortfalls. Unlike Auschwitz, the Nazis' infamous camp in Poland, which receives generous subsidies as well as backing from U.S. philanthropist Ron Lauder, the German camps attract scant private sponsorship, while government funds barely cover operating costs. At Dachau, townspeople long objected to directional signs to the camp.
