At Dachau the americans/brits took their weapons, accepted their surrender, then lined them up against the wall and shot them-breaking the rules of war.

Some concentration camp guards were shot or killed themselves, but most survived the war and were either put on trial and found guilty of crimes against humanity or fled to the US or USSR, later to be deported back to Germany. Here's a link about one former concentration camp guard who is still living today:
