Dachau and the SS: A Schooling in Violence

A lunchtime talk with Christopher Dillon


It is rare to find a senior figure in the Nazi concentration camp system up to 1942 who did not serve some kind of apprenticeship in Dachau, the only concentration camp which functioned from the beginnings of the Third Reich right through to the German defeat in 1945. The most infamous graduate of Dachau’s School was Rudolf Höß, the future Auschwitz Kommandant whose first four years in the camp system were spent as a guard and officer in Dachau. Despite a number of recent studies in German on SS concentration personnel elsewhere, there is still little focused scholarship on Dachau. Drawing on original research, Christopher Dillon will discuss how these guards were recruited and trained, and the factors that shaped the SS School at Dachau.
