The memorial for Georg Pöltl

The teenager Georg Pöltl was picked up by the police with a friend at the beginning of February 1945.

During interrogation, they confessed to stealing wine, food and clothing from bombed-out houses. As the prisons in Munich were overcrowded, they were taken to Dachau concentration camp for ‘alternative detention’. The concentration camp was also completely overcrowded at the time, the prisoners were starving and typhus was spreading.

After insisting on being allowed to visit her sixteen-year-old son in Dachau at the beginning of April, Georg Pöltl's mother was told by the SS that her son had already died of blood poisoning the week before.

On Tuesday, 4 June 2024, a memorial event for Georg Pöltl took place at the Monacensia of the Hildebrandhaus.

 City Councillor Kathrin Abele, representing the Lord Mayor, and Anke Buettner from the Monacensia, Dr Dirk Riedel from the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial and Thomas Hennet, the initiator of the Memorial Sign for Georg Pöltl, spoke, as were family member Paul Maria Wittmann and Florian Ring from the Bogenhausen district committee.

Afterwards, the Memorial Sign for Georg Pöltl was placed at his former place of residence at Ismaninger Straße 77.
