The problem

The Bayerischer Rundfunk (a German broadcaster) and Dachau concentration camp memorial side had to think about a new concept to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Dachau concentration camp

Time passes by, and more and more contemporary witnesses are not able to transport the important message of what was happening to the younger generation anymore. If no new solution is found to bring the suffering of the victims of the Nazi regime to life, this can lead to oblivion. On April 29, 1945 - exactly 75 years ago - The Dachau concentration camp was liberated by the U.S. army.

The solution

In cooperation with the startup ZAUBAR, BR and the Dachau concentration camp memorial site show the stories of the liberation from a new perspective in an augmented reality app on an interactive tour - right at the memorial site

AR thus enables completely new, immersive narrative modes. Through them, hard facts of history can be made clear and shown in an interesting new way. Every place has a rich history, which may not be visible at first glance, but with AR can be made visible.

The project schedule

Of central importance is the development and further optimization of location-based AR. This couples AR content to a fixed, centimeter-precise point in the real world, allowing information to be stored exactly where it is needed. With the help of AR, this information is then made visible at the exact moment the user needs it (i.e., as soon as he or she is in that location). Using QR codes scanned with an app, an AR experience can be placed with centimeter precision - as audio recordings, clickable points of interest, text, videos, images or 3D elements. For example, historical photos can be displayed exactly where they were taken, i.e. in an optimal perspective.
