    BERLIN, Germany: Angela Merkel will become the first German chancellor to visit the former Nazi concentration camp Dachau on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) as she steps up warnings about the far-right threat while campaigning for a third term. Merkel, 59, will be joined by the president of the Dachau camp committee of former prisoners, Max Mannheimer, and other survivors. Only part of the visit will be open to media. The 93-year-old Mannheimer had long lobbied for Merkel to pay a visit to the camp and said he saw her decision as “historic” and a “signal of respect for the former detainees.”
