Vice President Mike Pence, along with second lady Karen Pence and their eldest daughter Charlotte, visited the Dachau Nazi concentration camp Sunday near Munich, Germany, where he has been attending the Munich Security Conference. They were met by Karl Freller, the director of the Foundation of Bavarian Memorial Sites and joined by a survivor of the camp, Abba Naor, a Jewish Lithuanian who lives in Israel.
The Pences walked around the camp, touring various areas. They stood before a large map showing the network of camps around Germany and Nazi-occupied countries elsewhere in Europe. He and the second lady placed a wreath of white flowers in front of the memorial wall.
Dachau was liberated by American forces in April 1945. From March 1933, more than 188,000 prisoners were incarcerated there. It is unlikely that the total number of victims who died in Dachau will ever be known,
