What makes this tour special
In this fascinating six-hour tour, you will gain a first-hand experience of the former concentration camp used during the Third Reich for political, ethnic and religious prisoners.
Learn about the significance and history of Sachsenhausen.
Find out about the terrible hardships the prisoners faced at the camp.
Hear the appalling methods and experiments used to formulate a perfect ‘Aryan’ race.
Hear how the Soviets adopted the camp after the War, to house 60,000 political prisoners
Located just outside Berlin’s city limits, Sachsenhausen Memorial was of paramount importance to Hitler’s network of concentration camps, imprisoning around 200,000 people that the Nazi party thought were dangerous to political stability. The nearby town of Oranienburg became the administrative centre of all concentration camps across the Reich.
Due to missing records and the destruction of evidence, the official number of people murdered here is simply unknown. But estimates suggest that tens of thousands of people died of starvation, disease, mistreatment and murder throughout its use. The construction of gas chambers and ovens later in the War cements this view.
Today, Sachsenhausen is a reminder of the atrocities of the past and powerful monument for the people who lost their lives there. Now a centre of a thriving Jewish community, Berlin successfully encapsulates the brave fight against oppression and is a true beacon of hope for the future. Accompanied by your expert city guide, you will explore the memorial that stands today.
