Visit Sachenhausen Concentration Camp
Visit the infamous concentration camp where more than 200,000 people were imprisoned by the Nazis and some 50,000 were brutally murdered.
Sachsenhausen was initially used to imprison political opponents. Later the camp was used as a training ground for the Holocaust once certain groups had been defined as racially or biologically inferior.
Your knowledgeable guide will uncover the realities of life and death in the camp: people fell victim to starvation, disease, forced labor, and systematic extermination.
You'll also hear about life and death in Special Camp No. 7/1, as Sachsenhausen was to become known under the Soviets. Until its closure in 1950, a further 60,000 men were held captive here, mostly former Nazi functionaries, German POWs and Soviet deserters. Some 12,000 inmates died of hunger, cold and disease under the Soviets.How do I get my tickets?
