A group of 1,000 young German Socialists marched to the site of the Dachau concentration camp this weekend and placed wreaths on the mass grave of the Jews who were murdered at the camp.

In an address at the gathering, K. Senftaye, a German trade union leader, said that the victims of Dachau had been done to death because they belonged to a different race. It was incumbent upon the present generation of Germans, he said, to make sure that this would not happen again.
