Dachau Icon Of Christ

Dachau Icon Of Christ.

The Icon

This Icon of Christ reminds us of those Orthodox Christians that were detained or perished in the Nazi Concentration Camp at Dachau. On April 29th, 1945 the U.S. military troops liberated those in the concentration camp at Dachau. Among those detained were hundreds of Orthodox Christians who gathered together, upon their release, to celebrate the Resurrection service and to give thanks. May their memory be eternal!

This list, comprised from the research conducted by and available to the Hellenic Museum and Cultural Center, contains the names of only a small number of the Orthodox Christians who were detained at Dachau. Thousands more Orthodox Christians were detained or perished at the various Nazi Concentration Camps or as a result of Nazi invasions.

This icon presented by the Hellenic Museum & Cultural Center in cooperation with Orthodox Christian Synergy. The Hellenic Museum and Cultural Center is located at 801 West Adams, 4th floor Chicago, Illinois Gallery Hours: Monday-Friday 10 - 4.
