Dachau Death March
Introduction

In July 1944 while the Nazi empire was under pressure on all fronts, Hitler promised the Germans a miracle weapon that would shift the war in their favor and lead them to victory against the allies. One of the so called miracle weapons was the Jet fighter, Messerschmit M-62. Towards the end of the war, the Germans were the first to fly such jet fighters and greatly surprised the allies who were at that time bombing Germany day and night. Hitler was running out of time and hoped that he could build these planes in sufficient numbers to sweep the allied planes, who were much slower, out of the German skies.

The problem of the Nazis was where to build those planes while Germany was on under constant air attack. They came up with a brilliant plan to build underground factories with reinforced roofs five meters thick where no bombs could penetrate and that is where we come in.

These underground factories were to be built by us, the Jewish slave labor who were brought from all over Europe.

The sites for the factories were in Bavaria where three of them were to built.
