Abstract

This Collection relates to correspondences and official documents in regard to incarceration in the Dachau 3K Concentration Camp.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

This Collection comprises correspondences and some official papers related to the prisoners of the Dachau 3K Concentration Camp in 1934 -- 1944

Commandant's regulations in regard to prisoner correspondences read as follows,

Every inmate [whose deportation is pending] is allowed to send or receive one letter or card. The lines have to be written in ink clearly and legibly. Letters may not go over four normal pages with 15 lines each, cards not over 10 lines. Only a 12 Rpf. postal stamps may be attached to each writing; any more will be handed to penniless inmates. No photos are allowed to be sent. Each shipment has to include an inmate or block number. No packages of any kind may be received. Everything can be bought in the camp. It is permissible to send money, but they must be sent through postal recommendation. National socialist newspapers are permissible, but must be ordered through the postal censorship authority. Requests for the release of the internment to the camp administration are futile.

Collection Historical Note

Prisoners in German concentration camps were allowed a periodical correspondene in German language with family members and friends. All correspondences were censored.

Owing to censorship letters written on the provisioned camp letter forms were minimum individualized and related to overal good state of health, inquiries to the life of family members and gratitude to the earlier sent allowance, also provisioned by camp regulations.

Sending money was permitted but packages were not.  Requests to speak to or visit prisoners were prohibited and newspapers were permitted but only if ordered through the concentration camp post office. Though inmates could, in theory, send or receive two letters or cards each month, the regulations governing correspondence could be suspended arbitrarily and without notice.

Here are some excerpts from letters sent from the Dachau 3K Concentration camp. They are translated from German.
